More than 3 dozens people sighted moon in Bannu

In Bannu more than three dozen people claimed to have sighted the Shawwal moon late Thursday.

A shura of local clerics, under the supervision of Mufti Abdul Ghani, was held at the Eidgah of the main mosque in Bannu after the district government refused to allow the committee to hold their meeting at the Municipal Committee Hall to receive witnesses.

“The clerics in the mosque heard the testimonies and examined the evidences in light of shariah,” said Ghani while addressing the local people.

He said that they are convinced that the Shawwal moon has been sighted and Eidul Fitr will be on Friday, pointing out that they received more than 30 witnesses.
