Eid-ul-Fitr will be celebrated on Friday, May 14 according to the calendar and the Ruet app, said the Federal Minister for Information and Broadcasting Fawad Chaudhry on Sunday.
However, he clearly mentioned that the final decision in this regard will be taken by the Ruet-e-Hilal Committee.
He took to Twitter and said, “the moon will appear on May 13 and Eid will be on May 14, according to the calendar and the moon sighting app.”
The Ruet-e-Hilal Committee will meet on Wednesday to sight the Eid-ul-Fitr moon, the body had said in a statement issued on Saturday.
Maulana Abdul Khabir Azad will preside the proceedings of the committee in Islamabad, the statement said.
The meetings of zonal committees would take place in their respective areas, while the central committee would gather witnesses from across the country.
