Mufti Muneeb objects to Eid declaration, asks to observe ‘Qaza Roza’
KARACHI: Former chairman of Ruet-e-Hilal Committee Mufti Muneeb-ur-Rehman has raised objections on the decision to announce declaring Eid-ul-Fitr today on Thursday and asked the nation to observe one more fast as ‘Qaza Roza’.
While talking to the media in Karachi, President of Tanzeem-ul-Madaris and Chairman of Darul Uloom Naeemia Mufti Muneeb-ur-Rehman expressed displeasure on the decision of Ruet-e-Hilal Committee, saying that, ‘I have been crying all night over the decision.’
Mufti Muneeb said the Ruet-e-Hilal Committee was waiting for the crescent sighting confirmation from Mufti Shahabuddin Popalzai of Qasim Ali Khan Mosque, and as soon as they announced Eid, the committee did the same.
He appealed that Muslims must observe one fast more as ‘Roza Qaza’ (Delayed fast) and added that one-day Itikaf is also necessary to be observed
Remember The Ministry of Religious Affairs and Inter-Faith Harmony on Wednesday removed Mufti Muneebur Rehman from the post of chairman of Ruet-i-Hilal Committee and replaced him with Maulana Abdul Khabeer Azad, Khateeb of Badshahi Masjid, Lahore.
