Attempts by Arab media to undermine significance of Ramadan, Eid al
Fitr moon sighting

Eid al Fitr 2018: Besides the necessary appeals issued by the Royal
Court and local moon sighting committees, Saudi Arabia, UAE and other
Middle East countries are witnessing a new trend since last few years
before the start of Ramadan and Eid al Fitr.

A report carrying statements attributed to some “astronomical center
or observatory” will be published by any one of the Arab media which
is then reproduced and widely followed by others. Hype is then created
and public opinion is built, days before the official announcements by
the Saudi Royal Court or Moon Sighting Committees formed in the UAE
and other Arab states to decide the start of Ramadan and Eid al Fitr
