Fawad says scholars should refrain from lying when they see the moon

Federal Minister Fawad Chaudhry, reacting strongly to the announcement of unofficial Eid by some clerics, suggested avoiding lying about moon sighting when it was impossible to observe in Pakistan at a young age.

According to 24 News HD TV channel, the federal minister said in his recent tweet on Wednesday that those who want to celebrate Eid with Saudi Arabia and Afghanistan had the option but to end the holy month by lying. What is the logic of this?

Fawad Chaudhry has said in his tweet that the age of the moon in Pakistan is 13 hours and 42 minutes when people were announcing the installation of the moon, so it is not possible to see the moon today (May 12, 2021).

He suggested that the strategy would be to explicitly tell those involved to declare Eid an unofficial Eid day, according to Afghanistan or Saudi Arabia.

It is worth mentioning here that some ulema from close to the western borders of Pakistan had announced that they had found a lot of evidence that the moon was set to celebrate Eid on Thursday.

The Central Route Hilal Committee has denied any concrete evidence of moon sightings across the country, so Eid should be celebrated on Friday, May 14. The committee also used some science-based instruments on the occasion of the birth of Shawwal Chand.

Earlier, the Meteorological Department, citing astronomical parameters, said it was unlikely to refer to the Shawwal moon on Wednesday as it would form on May 12, 2021 at the end of “00-01 PST”.
