MIRANSHAH: Reportedly, the Shawal moon was sighted in the Hyderkhel area of North Waziristan Agency here on Friday, Geo News learnt.

 

According to local sources, people started aerial firing after they claimed to have sighted the Shawal crescent.

 

The sighting of Shawwal moon means the fasting month of Ramazan has finally culminated into Eid-ul-Fitr, the biggest religious festival of the Muslims.

 

A meeting in the chair of Qari Mohammad Romaan is underway in the Jamia Masjid Miranshah to deliberate the moon-sighting reports.

They are breaking records at an alarming rate. Next years I won't be shocked if they claim they saw the moon on 20th of the Holy month. They never acknowledge they are wrong, i.e. proud ignorants.

First for Pakistan; at-least they beat the Arabs this time! If Pakistan decides to celebrate then probability of NZ celebrating on Sunday increases considerably.
