The Federal Minister for Science and Technology said that the moon of Zilhajj could be sighted with the help of binoculars and in some areas, with the naked eye as well.
Last week, the Federal Information Minister Shibli Faraz said that the government of Pakistan has taken the measures to tackle the coronavirus pandemic during Eid. He said that the PTI-federal government has formulated the strict rules and regulations to avoid the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) during the Eid days.
