The Ruet: Pakistan launches mobile app for moon sightings
The app has been named ‘The Ruet’ in reference to the Ruet-e-Hilal Committee (RHC), the primary moon-sighting committee responsible for announcing the start of lunar months. The app can be downloaded from the Google Play Store.
The app gives out real time information about the current phase and age of the moon and Islamic Hijri calendar. It can set location manually to any coordinates in Pakistan. The app also provides moon, sun and all major planets’ positions on the interactive sky simulation.
Fawad, who earlier held the ministry for information and broadcasting, says conspiracies are being hatched not to let Pakistan develop with modern technological equipment, application of moon-sighting and others.
Last week, the Science ministry launched moon sighting website and lunar calendar in the Muslim majority country in South Asia.
