Eid al-Adha falls on July 10 in Pakistan

Karachi (HRNW) Pakistan’s moon-sighting body, the Ruet-e-Hilal Committee, has reported that the Zill Hajj crescent was not sighted on Wednesday and consequently the Eid al-Adha will fall on July 10 this year.

Ruet-e-Hilal committee Chairman Maulana Syed Abdul Khabir Azad chaired the meeting of the central committee in Karachi. Officials of the ministry of religious affairs, SUPARCO, Met Office, and Ministry of Science and Technology also attended the meeting.

Zonal committees held meetings at their respective headquarters in Lahore, Islamabad, Quetta and Peshawar.

Earlier, astronomers predicted that Eid al-Adha will fall on July 10 as there are lesser chances of Zilhaj crescent sighting on June 29.
