KARACHI : Chairman of the Ruet-e-Hilal Committee, Mufti Muneeb-ur-Rahman, on Wednesday said that Prime Minister Imran Khan should declare a three-day holiday for Eid ul Adha as it is traditionally a three-day celebration. Last week, the federal government had announced a three-day holiday, from Friday, July 31 to Sunday, August 2, on account of Eid ul Adha. Addressing a press conference in Karachi, the religious scholar said there is “no conflict between ulema and science” and that the ulema “also have scientific knowledge”. He said meterologists from Pakistan Meteorological Department were a part of the decision making during the moon-sighting. Lamenting the ongoing brutal lockdown in India-occupied Kashmir by the Indian forces, Mufti Muneeb said that it has been nearly a year and the incumbent government “has done nothing and only passed resolutions in this regard”. “A clearer message on the Kashmir conflict has still not been given to India at the international level,” he said.
