Prime Minister Imran Khan’s Special Representative for Interfaith Harmony Maulana Tahir Ashrafi, Following the controversy regarding the sighting of the Shawwal moon and the celebration of Eid in Pakistan on Thursday, has said that the Central Ruet-e-Hilal Committee (RHC) took the right decision.
He clarified that neither the decision to announce Eid-ul-Fitr on Thursday was wrong nor are believers required to observe a qaza fast.
Tahir Ashrafi’s comments came in response to former Ruet-e-Hilal Committee Chairman Mufti Muneeb ur Rehman’s statement in which he urged believers to observe a qaza fast in lieu of Ramadan 30.
Former chairman of RHC Mufti Muneeb ur Rehman had also asked those who observed aitkaaf to perform a qaza for that along with a fast, adding that he too would be fasting on Friday to make up for the missed roza.
