In Hyderabad, the Central Ruet-e-Hilal Committee meets on the 29th of Ramzan to declare when Eid-ul-Fitr will be celebrated. Their decision is based on the sighting of the crescent.

India may celebrate Eid-ul-Fitr with Saudi Arabia

Usually, Eid is celebrated in India a day after it is celebrated in the Middle East. However, this year, there is a possibility of India celebrating Eid-ul-Fitr with Saudi Arabia and other Middle Eastern countries.

According to various reports, including one released by the British government, it may be nearly impossible to sight the crescent in the Middle East even by using a telescope on Thursday. If the prediction becomes true, Middle Eastern countries will celebrate Eid on Saturday. In India, if the crescent is sighted on Friday, Eid-ul-Fitr will be celebrated on Saturday.

Irrespective of when Eid-ul-Fitr will be celebrated in India, Telangana has already declared two holidays on April 22 and 23. Incidentally, the second holiday falls on a Sunday.
