The Central Ruet-e-Hilal Committee will meet in Karachi on Sunday evening to sight the Zil-Hajj moon.

Chairman of the Committee Mufti Muneeb-ur-Rehman will preside over the meeting.

The Zonal Ruet-e-Hilal Committees will also hold separate meetings to collect evidence of sighting of the moon.

The Zil-Hajj moon “will be born on Saturday afternoon” and will be visible on Sunday evening, the Met stated on August 10.

In Saudi Arabia, the moon was sighted Saturday evening, with the Supreme Court of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia announcing Eid-ul-Azha on August 21.
