2 eids in pakistan, mufti popalzai, ruet-e-hilal committee, eids in pakistan

2 Eids in Pakistan, again, amid the launch of the moon sighting app and the website. It all happens after the Federal Minister of Science and Technology denied the moon sighting claims based on scientific evidence. But Mufti Popalzai doesn’t believe in science. He is also a self Proclaimed Ruet-e-Hilal Committee announced Eid on June 4th, 2019.

Shockingly, the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Provincial Government announced that Government will observe Eid on 4th June, 2019, as they too have received many Shahadats of sighting the Eid moon. Shaukat Yosufzai the Government spokesperson added that Ministers, the Chief Minister and the Governor will offer Eid prayers at the Governor House.

He said the decision was taken to promote provincial harmony, the decision came after Mufti Popalzai announced the Eid moon sighting.

Somebody was Quick to Point that out:

Fawad Chaudhry Commented on the Self Proclaimed Ruet-e-Hilal Committee but Failed to Respond to the KP Government’s Decision.

Awam Pointed out that even the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Government did not Believe in the Scientific Moon Sighting Methods.

In another tweet Fawad Chaudhry Condemned the Ulema,

Somebody asked an Innocent Question, Where does KP Government Stand on the 2 Eids in Pakistan Fiasco.


The Malakand and Hazara division, Government lead institutions and Army cantonment area will celebrate Eid with the rest of the country on the announcement by officials Ruet-e-Hilal committee. So, there will be 2 Eids in Pakistan this year too.

The official Ruet-e-Hilal committee lead by Mufti Muneeb Ur Rehman, will meet in Karachi today to sight moon, while the Minister for Science and Technology has already announced Eid on June 5th.

Earlier, In a press conference on Monday, Fawad Chaudhry leashed out the religious clergy, for their affinity to olden ways. He said Quran compels Muslims to learn and seek, But sadly the Ulema are not using common sense.

But this Guy has a Valid point,

Whatever is the case, the Governemt of KPK should clarify their decision to celebrate Eid as per Mufti Popalzai. Also, when there wasn’t any chance of moon sighting scientifically, then the eye witnesses should be questioned by a proper inquiry commission. Mufti Popalzai however respected, should not be allowed to set up a Ruet-e-Hilal committee on his own. Instead, he should be incorporated in the federal committee, so the Shahadats (witness for moon sighting) for moon could be verified. And the trend of the controversial 2 Eids in Pakistan comes to an end.
