Sindh is giving 5 days off for Eid ul Fitr.
The Sindh government has made Eid ul Fitr, one of the most important Muslim holidays, a five-day holiday, just like the federal government did last week.
Punjab also has a five-day break planned.
In a notice sent out on Monday, the Sindh government said that it had declared “public holidays on the occasion of Eid ul Fitr 2023 from 21 to 25 April (Friday to Tuesday) throughout the province of Sindh for all government offices, autonomous, semi-autonomous bodies, corporations, and local councils under the administrative control of the government of Sindh, except for the essential services.”
When will Eid ul Fitr be?
A statement from the ministry of religious affairs said that the Central Ruet-e-Hilal Committee will meet on April 20 to look for the Eid ul Fitr crescent moon.
The meeting will take place at the religious affairs ministry in Islamabad. Ruet-e-Halal Committee Chairman Maulana Abdul Khabir Azad will be in charge, according to the statement.
In the same statement, it was also said that the meetings of the zonal groups will take place in certain places all over the country.
Experts think that the moon will be born on Thursday, April 20, at 9:13 a.m. Pakistan time.
At sunset on the 29th of Ramadan, the moon should have been up for more than 19 hours. But it will be less than 10 hours everywhere in Pakistan.
Even though there should be more than 40 minutes between sunset and moonset, there will only be 21 minutes between them in Peshawar, Gilgit, Muzaffarabad, Charsadda, Islamabad/Rawalpindi, Quetta, Jiwani, and Jiwani, and 20 minutes between them in Lahore and Karachi.
Ramadan 2023 began on March 23 after there was a lot of confusion at the meeting to look at the moon.
