ISLAMABAD – Prime Minister’s Special Assistant on Religious Harmony Tahir Ashrafi Thursday trashed Mufti Muneeb’s objection and said that the Ruet-e-Hilal Committee took the right decision about the Eid announcement.

Maulana Tahir Ashrafi dismissed all allegations to announce Eid on the behest of top officials, adding that the Central Ruet-e-Hilal Committee took the decision based on witnesses.

Taking it to Twitter, PM’s aide wrote that the announcement was made by the Central Ruet-e-Hilal Committee according to the Shariah, and believers are not obliged to observe a Qaza fast.

On Thursday, former Ruet chairman Mufti Muneeb urged Pakistanis to observe fast (Qaza Roza) in the coming days as the Ruet-e-Hilal committee made a huge mistake in announcing Eid, and the decision was taken at the behest of rulers.
