The Central Ruet - Hilal (Moon Sighting) Committee is to be convened today at Saudi Tower in Islamabad for the purpose of moon sighting and deciding upon the incidence of Eid. A couple of members of zonal committees' members will also take part in the deliberations. However, as always, the Zonal Committee in Peshawar announced yesterday (Sunday) that Eid in NWFP will be celebrated today (Monday). Thus, the good guardians of the faith in that province led the subjects to celebrate Eid today and I saw news footage on TV of Eid prayers being offered at Charsadda Road.
Well, what should I say except for wishing a very happy Eid? I don't know why this country can't go together. Although there's a Central committe, I fail to understand why everyone (read pathan brothers) feels the need to flaunt the writ, more so when the central committee is a government mandated body!!!
