Karachi: The Central Ruet-e-Hilal Committee with Mufti Munib-ur-Rehman in the chair will meet in Karachi for the sighting of the crescent of Ramazan.

An official of the Ministry of Religious Affairs and Interfaith Harmony told that other members of the committee will attend Zonal and District Ruet-e-Hilal Committees at their respective places.

The Pakistan Meteorological Department (PMD) has predicted the possibility of Ramazan moon sighting on the evening of May 6 (Monday).

Saudi Arabia and other countries in the Middle East, however, will be able to see the moon on May 5 and observe the first fast of the holy month on May 6.

Ruet-e-Hilal Committee Chairman Mufti Munib-ur-Rehman would announce the decision of Ramadan moon sighting or otherwise subsequently on the basis of information received.
