Lahore, 11th April: Eid-ul-Fitr will be observed on the same day throughout the country this year.
Special Assistant of the Prime Minister on Religious Harmony Maulana Tahir Ashrafi has announced on Sunday that Eid-ul-Fitr will be observed on the same day throughout Pakistan this year.
He also clarified that the same would apply to the start of the holy month of Ramadan.
It is to be noted that each year a controversy starts regarding citing the moon for the start of Ramadan and Eid in Pakistan. Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and tribal areas of the country begin the holy month of Ramadan and celebrate eid a day before the rest of the country.
While addressing a press conference today, the SAPM informed that a meeting for sighting the Ramadan moon had been called in Peshawar. He promised that the whole country will observe the holy month together this year.
Ashrafi also stated that no mosque will be closed during Ramadan amid the third wave of coronavirus pandemic.
However, he has urged people to follow all the SOPs to curb the spread of the virus.
