Special Report - Pehli Ka Chand - Part 3

Sighted the new moon is usually a quiet affair in Pakistan for 10 months of the Hijri calendar. Even when it comes to the crescent of Shawwal and Ramazan, the brand of this country a divine spectacle of it. An effort by the Senate Friday that is standing Committee on Religious Affairs to try and ensure that the whole nation observed the beginning of Ramazan and the celebration of Eidul most suitable on the same day he failed because the clerics have finished on the lead shooting easier 'each other. Scholars from the mosque Can Qasim Peshawar - an institution that has often been in disagreement with the central Ruet-i-Hilal Committee decision - said he would not accept the authority of the Committee; Popalzai Mufti, representing the mosque in Peshawar, has accused the committee of being a "government body" and reprimanded for 'ignoring the Sharia'. The suggestion from a committee member who met office data should be taken into account when deciding on the moon was in an ugly spat with the science of that contingent of Qasim Can not be trusted in this matter. A subcommittee will meet to try and bring together the hours ulema apparently irreconcilable.

Moon-sighting is a strange dilemma, perennial in Pakistan. Order the Ruet-i-Hilal Committee over the 10 days before the start of Ramazan ahead of its time. But since this is a nation that has seen three Eids in a year, maybe the possibility of two denotes progress.There could be a sectarian angle to the spat, as the main-Mufti Muneeb Ruet l'ur-Rahman and the gentlemen from the mosque Can Qasim belong to two different schools of thought. However, the Ruet-i-Hilal Committee characterizes the members of all major Muslim schools of thought from across Pakistan. The factionalism and disagreement for the sake of disagreement should be escaped. If it helps, the committee should meet in Peshawar to strengthen the unity.
