Yes, this is just another topic for people to gossip around. Different point of views are put in front of you just to frame a bad picture of either the people of NWFP or the Members of “Rooet-e-Hilal Committee”. The reason why I decided to do a post on this topic is a Hadith, of which I am specifying the central idea.“When the day of Judgment will be near, people will start gossiping on the sight of Moon and say that this moon is not of 29th or this moon should have sighted yesterday in case of 30 days of Ramadan
Since I have heard this hadith, trust me its been very depressing to hear people when as per the sight of moon Eid is declared to be after 30th Ramadan and people start claiming
“yar dekhna kal ka chanda bara hu ga” & they prove it by showing it on the sky!
“Aik roza zyada rakhwa dya bhyee” ,
“Yar in logon ko kuch nazar nae aataa” ,
“Yar in ko Karachi mein chand nazar nae aata baqee sub jaaga aajata hai”
And what not, the same people contradict their statements when the Sight of Moon is announced to have Eid after 29th ramadan, you might have found the following comments
“Bhyee ye aik roza kha gaye”
“NWFP k pressure mein aagaye!”
“How come they have seen it yar ….technically its not possible k ajj chand nazar aaye ”
and now a very good one that I have heard….this time!!!
“Yar zardari ka fone aayaa America sey k Eid karwa do…” lolz!!
“Emergency Eid Mubarak”
“Sayaasi Eid Mubarak”
C`mon! Where are we heading towards?? Isn’t that something we call illiteracy or what we say ‘JAHALIYAT’. I don’t want to offend any one by using such words. But believe me we are not leading towards any conclusion whether we comment over it or not. As per our usual routine we have made it our habit to comment over these things.
The credit of spreading this chaos this time goes to our TV Channels as well, who put the ticker on their channels about the announcement of EID to be n Thursday. However the chairman of Rooet-e-Hilal Committee had not announced nor did any press conference regarding any finalized decision. Forgod sake, GEO/ARY/EXPRESS/ATV/DAWN/SAMA you are all requested not to race in spreading news without any confirmation that turns out to be a rumor later on. In this era when our whole nation is discriminated, when we all need to stand by a Flag yet united… this act of media channels is affecting the noble cause of those who want to have peace and prosperous Pakistan.
Wishing you are very HappY EID!
