Ramadan 2021: Central Ruet-e-Hilal committee to meet today in Peshawar

The Central Ruet-e-Hilal Committee will meet today in Peshawar to sight the Ramadan moon, confirmed the body's chairman Maulana Abdul Khabeer Azad.

Representatives of the Pakistan Meteorological Department, Ministry of Science and Technology, along with Mufti Shahabuddin Popalzai, a local ruet committee head, are expected to attend the meeting.

This would be the first Ramadan moon sighting under the new chairman, Moulana Azad, who was appointed by the federal government in December last year, replacing Mufti Muneeb-ur-Rehman.

Earlier in January, the new chairman said he would try his best to bring harmony in observing Ramazan and celebrating Eid in the country in the years to come.
