Eid ul Fitr 2021 will be observed on the same day throughout Pakistan, said the Special Assistant to Prime Minister on Religious Harmony Maulana Tahir Ashrafi on Sunday.
The special assistant also mentioned that the same would apply for the start of the holy month of Ramadan.
Previously, the country celebrated Eid ul Fitr on two different dates because of the controversy surrounding the moon sighting in Pakistan.
However, the special assistant has promised that Eid ul Fitr 2021 will be observed together throughout Pakistan along with the start of the holy month of Ramadan.
Furthermore, he mentioned that a meeting to sight the Ramadan 2021 moon has been scheduled in Peshawar on Tuesday.
Tahir Ashrafi also said that no mosques or madaris will be closed during the month of Ramadan 2021 and urged everyone to follow the coronavirus standard operating procedures (SOPs) to keep the spread of the deadly infection under control.
