This was announced by the Chairman of the Central Ruet-i-Hilal Committee, Mufti Munib ur Rehman. He said that all the Zonal Ruet-i-Hilal Committees would meet at their respective headquarters. The meeting will be held in the building of Pakistan Meteorological Department, Karachi whereas the Zonal/District Ruet-e-Hilal Committee will hold their meetings at their respective places on the same date and time.

The Central Ruet-e-Hilal Committee chairman Mufti Muneeb ur Rehman will announce the decision of crescent sighting or otherwise subsequently on the basis of information received to this end.

A costly Ramazan

Four weeks ago, the federal cabinet approved a relief package worth Rs2.27 billion to reduce the prices of kitchen items during the month of Ramazan. However, given the quadrupling of  food prices due to the ongoing flood crisis, this Ramazan may see numerous hardships for citizens. According to Saqib Omar Saeed, Financial researcher and analyst, little can be done given the conditions at hand:


Everyone knows his buying power. Get together, cut your budgets in Ramazan and Eid and make a pool of money within your lanes, localities that can work for those who are deprived of the basics.
