The Central Ruet-e-Hilal Committee (RHC) will meet on April 20 for the Shawwal moon sighting in order to confirm the dates for Eid-ul-Fitr.
However, the Ruet-e-Hilal Research Council (RHRC) has stated that chances of crescent sighting for the month of Shawwal on April 20 are very low and Ramadan is likely to complete 30 days this year.
It means that Eid-ul-Fitr will likely fall on April 22.
