Shawwal Moon has appeared 

The moon of Shawwal has appeared in different parts of the country, after which Eid-ul-Fitr will take place tomorrow on Thursday.

Addressing a press conference after a long meeting of the Central Route Hilal Committee, Chairman Maulana Abdul Khabir Azad said that evidence was received from all over Pakistan and it was cloudy in many places.

He said that testimonies were received from Chaman, Qila Saifullah, Pasni, Peshawar and Sindh after which it was decided by coincidence that the first Shawwal Mukarram 1442 AH would be on Thursday 13th May 2021 and tomorrow would be the day of Eid-ul-Fitr.

"The zonal committee of Chaman and Shawar took the testimonies and delivered the decision to us," he said.

Earlier, the meeting of zonal committees of Karachi, Lahore and Sukkur ended and the moon was nowhere to be seen.

During the break of Maghrib prayers, Maulana Abdul Khabir Azad, Chairman, Central Route Hilal Committee, said that no evidence of sighting of the moon has been received from any area so far.

On the other hand, the Meteorological Department says that the moon has been born but the age of the moon can be seen only when it is 20 hours and 40 minutes. In any part of Pakistan, the age of the moon is not 20 hours and 40 minutes.

In addition, former Minister of Science and Technology and current Minister of Information Fawad Chaudhry had said that according to scientific evidence, Eid-ul-Fitr will be on Friday, May 14.
