Islamabad, May 5: The Ruet-e-Hilal Committee in Pakistan will convene a couple of hours before sunset, to monitor the sighting of Ramzan moon in all parts of the nation. If the crescent is spotted, the holy month of Ramadan 2019 would commence, and the first roza or fast would be observed from tomorrow, May 6.

If the crescent remains invisible, then Ramadan fasts would be observed from Tuesday, May 7. Experts are of the view that the sighting of Hilal crescent is unlikely in Indian subcontinent, as the moon was unseen in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and other parts of the Gulf on Saturday. Ads per the usual precedent, the lunar calendar in eastern hemisphere ticks a day after the western part of the world.
