Thiruvananthapuram, July 28 IANS | 3 months ago

The Kazis in Kerala have declared that Monday would be the 30th day of Ramadan and Id-ul-Fitr will be celebrated Tuesday as the moon was not sighted Sunday after Iftar.


Muslims in Kerala account for around 24 percent of the 33 million population.

Id-ul-Fitr will be celebrated both in Oman and Kerala Tuesday.

Kazis like Panakad Syed Hyderali Shihab Thangal and Palayam Imam Yousuf Muhammed Nadvi, besides others, decided late Sunday that since the moon was not seen, Id will fall on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, arrangements are in full swing across the state as Idgahs are being set up at big playgrounds, halls and open places.

As the weather office has forecast rainfall, many have decided to put up Idgahs in halls for Tuesday morning prayers.

All state government offices will be closed Monday and Tuesday.
