Eid Al Fitr 2017 moon sighting in Pakistan today | pakistantribe.com

ISLAMABAD – Chairman Central Ruet-e-Hilal Committee, Mufti Muneeb ur Rehman has on Saturday announced that the Eid Al Fitr 2017 will be celebrated on the same day across Pakistan, PakistanTribe.com reported.

Mufti Munib made this announcement while speaking to media on Saturday.

Eid celebration on the same day across the country now seems much possible after Mufti Shahabuddin Popalzai of Masjid Al Qasim went mysteriously missing just two days before the moon sighting event.

Shawwal Moon Sighted, Eid 2017 announced in parts of Pakistan

According to Popalzai’s family, he went to Islamabad two days ago and was last seen at Islamabad Airport.

Popalzai’s phone is also going off ever since his son told media.

It is feared that he has either been abducted or taken int custody by security agencies for creating a chaos in the country over moonsighting. Nothing could be taken as final word, however.

It is pertinent to mention here that he was supposed to lead a moon sighting committee of Masjid Al Qasim at the mosque today, June 24, after Maghrib prayers.

However, several prominent scholars of the country had stated that celebration of Eid a day before, (on June 24 ) would be un-Islamic.

Central Ruet-e-Hilal Committee is scheduled to meet in Peshawar, under Mufti Munib ur Rehman on Sunday.
