Islamabad: Minister for Science and Technology Fawad Chaudhry has once again demanded abolition of Central Ruet-e-Hilal Committee.
Fawad Chaudhry, while criticizing the Ruet-e-Hilal Committee, argued that there is no need for such a committee in this modern era.
He also claimed that the committee led by Mufti Muneeb-ur-Rehman hopes that Eid al-Fitr will be held on Monday, May 25 instead of Sunday.
He also announced in a press conference that the motives behind the move were revealed.
Last year, the minister proposed that the scientific committee replace the central Ruet-e-Hilal committee to observe the moon.
