Ramazan to commence on Saturday: Mufti Popalzai
Addressing a press conference along with scores of other religious personalities here on Friday, Mufti Popalzai said he has received enough evidence of the Ramazan crescent being sighted in Peshawar and its adjoining areas although he refused to reveal the identity of the eyewitnesses.
Soon after Mufti Muneeb ur Rehman, Chairman of Central Reut-e-Hilal Committee, said that no credible testimony was received and so Ramazan will start on Sunday, mufti Popalzai announced the start of the holy month from Saturday.
