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.
He also announced to reveal motives of the committee behind such a move during a press conference.
Last year, the minister proposed that a scientific committee should replace the Central Ruet-e-Hilal Committee for sighting of the moon.
