Minister demands abolition of “useless” Ruet-e-Hilal Committee

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, which is headed by Mufti Muneeb-ur-Rehman, wants Eid to fall on Monday, May 25 instead of Sunday.
