PESHAWAR Eid-ul-Fitr once again was celebrated one day earlier in most parts of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and its adjacent tribal areas on Friday, while rest of the country will celebrate it today. The zonal committee in Peshawar headed by Mufti Shahab-ud-Din Popalzai, congregational leader of historical Qasim Ali Khan Masjid Qissa Khwani, made announcement of Eid after a meeting in the mosque. 20 witnesses, including two women, had recorded their evidences about the moon sighting. Therefore, Friday was declared as the first day of Shawwal-ul-Muk-aram. Later on, Provincial Minister Bashir Ahmad Bilour and Religious Affairs Minister Nimroz Khan also attended the zonal committee meeting and gave official approval to the announcement. Earlier, Central Ruet-i-Hilal Committee, headed by Mufti Muneeb-ur-Rahman had announced on Thursday that since no evidence of moon sighting was received from anywhere in the country, hence Eid would be celebrated on Saturday (today). In Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Eid-ul-Fitr prayers were offered in most of the mosques of the provincial metropolis, Peshawar, and suburbs of Peshawar. In Peshawar the main congregation of Eid prayer was held on Eid Ghah Road. Chief Minister Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Ameer Haider Khan Hoti, Governor Owais Ahmad Ghani, Senior Minister Bashir Ahmad Bilour and other ministers also offered Eid prayer in Governor House. While all those mosques, following the decision of central Ruit-i-Hilal committee, will offer their Eid prayer on Saturday (today) in cantonment board area.
