Federal Minister for Science and technology Fawad Chaudhry said that we respected Mufti Muneeb Ur Rehman and other Ulemas but so much elderly Ulemas take part in moon sighting which cannot see things placed in front of them.
Fawad Chaudhry said that moon sighting is totally a scientific matter adding that telescope is something 100 years old but it is not the right way to urge for moon sighting adding that prayer timings are linked to the Sun but not everyone looked the Sun going outside instead all saw watches.
