Ramazan moon to be sighted on April 24: Fawad Chaudhry

Islamabad (Web desk): Federal minister for Science and Technology Fawad Chaudhry on Wednesday said the Ramazan moon will be sighted on April 24.

"Mufti Muneeb-ur-Rahman is our elder and I respect him but he cannot even see such a big moon, how can he see the tiny coronavirus," Chaudhry said on Twitter. He added, "We have brought to the attention of Ministry of Religious Affairs [and Inter-faith Harmony] that if the head of your ministerial committee pokes fun at the government's orders, what can you expect from others?”

As per the lunar calendar, if Ramazan moon sighted on April 24, Muslims will observe first fast of the holy month on April 25.
