After years, Pakistan joins other world countries to observe beginning of the fasting month on the same day.

Pakistan Central Ruet-i-Hilal Committee Chairman Mufti Munibur Rehman announced on Wednesday.

A spokesperson of Delhi's Jama Masjid said the moon was sighted.

Muslims in India, Pakistan and Bangaldesh normally begin Ramzan fasting a day later than Saudi Arabia and other GCC countries. The moon sighting committees will hold special meeting today after Salate Maghrib and ascertain, if any, reports of moon sighting. It stated that according to astronomical parameters, there is a fair chance of sighting the new moon of Ramazan, 1439 AH on 29th of Shaban, 1439 AH.

Addressing a press conference along with members of the Central Ruet-e-Hilal Committee, representatives of the Meteorological Departments, Mufti Muneeb said that testimonies of moon-sighting were received from various parts of the country including Lower Dir, Buner, Nathia Gali, Abbottabad, Quetta and other areas.

He added the age of the new moon on Wednesday evening will be more than 26 hours in all cities of Pakistan, and the difference between sunset and moonset will be 58-60 minutes.

Earlier the Australian National Imams Council declared that the holy month of Ramadhan will begin on Thursday. They also try to avoid evil thoughts and deeds during the holy month. Fasting during the entire month is one of the five tenets of Islam.

Muslims are meant to fast from dawn to dusk during the lunar month, a time of restraint and austerity.

It was during Ramazan that the holy Prophet Mohammed (PBUH) started receiving revelations of the holy Quran.
