The Zilhaj moon has not been sighted and Eidul Azha will be celebrated across Pakistan on July 10 (Sunday), Central Ruet-e-Hilal Committee Chairman Maulana Syed Abdul Khabir Azad announced on Wednesday.

The decision was announced following a meeting of the committee, held in Karachi after Maghrib prayers to sight the crescent.

Addressing a press conference, Azad said no testimony of the moon being sighted was received from any part of the country.

The first day of Zilhaj would fall on July 1 (Friday), he added.

"May God grant the blessings of the upcoming days to the entire Islamic world and this beloved country of mine," he added.
