Furthermore, the Pakistan Meteorological Department predicted the possibility of moon sighting on the evening of May 6. Countries in the Middle East including Saudi Arabia will observe the first fast of the holy month on May 6.
The Central Ruet-e-Hilal Committee barred the Pakistan Meteorological Department from making any prediction regarding moon saying that its prediction created confusion among masses.

Earlier, Science and Technology Minister Fawad Chaudhry on Sunday made a statement against the Islamic Scholars that has angered them big time.
He said that the decision on how to run the country can’t be left to a Maulana and most of the Ulemas were against the creation of Pakistan.
This accusation made by such a high-level Government official is quite a serious one. However, Fawad Chaudhry is not one to shy away from speaking his mind.
