ONE COMMENT ON THIS POST To “Ramzan fasting from tomorrow: District Moon Committee meeting held”

  1. Zaheer Ahmed says:

    Why dont all Muslims in India and particularly of Mysore follow the start of Ramazan from Makkah, which is the birth place of Islam, instead of delaying fasting by one day, which is harm and a sin to eat if it is the day of Saum (roza) by Allah. Do these people’s egos greater than that of God, or do these people feel happy to commit sin to protect their ego? Also it is Haram to keep fasting on the day of Eid. When the whole of Saudi Arabia and the Arabian countries are celebrating Eid, because of these egoists the entire public in Mysore is fasting . The old tradition of sighting the moon was ok for the Arabs, as the whole of desert is a open sky, and the crescent can be seen easily from anywhere in the desert, but to be so in places like India or other dense countries. It’s about time, all Muslims observe fasting on the same and break fasting on the same day with one clear place to view the the moon – that is Makkah in Saudi Arabia, the cradle of Islam. The whole world mocks at the divergent claims of varies maulvis and muftis to mislead the local public everywhere, which should be strictly given up.
