Fawad Ch says moon-sighting issue to be resolved permanently next year

Federal Minister for Science and Technology Fawad Chaudhry on Sunday said that two moon observatories would be established in Islamabad and Gawadar before next Ramazan to permanently resolve moon-sighting conflicts.

In a video statement on Twitter, the federal minister said that anyone could see the moon through these observatories. He said that this initiative would remove all the confusion about the moon sighting.

Fawad Ch said that it was good omen that all the Muslim countries were celebrating Eid on the same day. He lauded the services of Ruet-e-Hilal Committee members especially Mufti Muneeb-ur-Rehman. He gave credit to religious scholars for celebrating Eid on same day in Pakistan.

"This Eid was not possible without them. I thank them all," he mentioned.
