The minister further said that the “exact location” of the moon can also be ascertain through the Ruet App.

The minister has been advocating that the Ministry of Science and Technology take the lead in the sighting of the moon issue which is usually done by the Central Ruet-e-Hilal Committee.

He has called for the ministry to take lead so the controversy surrounding the issue could be ended once and for all.

On Eid-ul-Fitr, Chaudhry had said that two moon observatories will be set up by next year to “permanently resolve” moon-sighting conflicts.
