Eid falls on Sunday

October 12, 2007 22:14 IST

Eid will be celebrated in India on Sunday. This was announced by Mufti Mohd Mukkaram Ahmed, the Shahi Imam of Delhi's Fatehpuri Masjid, after a meeting of the Ruyat-e-Hilal committee on Friday.

The new moon of Eid-ul-Fitr has not been sighted on Friday and the committee declared that the first 'Shawwalu Mukaram' will be on Sunday, a spokesperson of the committee said. Muslims have been observing fast since September 12.
