Mali's Minister of Religious Affairs, after consultations with Mali's Commission nationale d’observation de la lune, has announced that Monday, June 3, 2019, would be the non-working public holiday in Mali for the upcoming Aïd al-Fitr Public Holiday (End of Ramadan).
The aforementioned declaration of Monday, June 3, 2019, as a non-working public holiday in Mali is in contradiction with the list of 2019 public holidays in the Mali, as announced earlier this year (2019-01-15), and most certainly does not correspond to an accurate sighting of the first crescent of the New Moon, despite official pronouncements to the contrary ("Le croissant lunaire Chawal ou Seli N’tjini Kalo a été aperçu le dimanche à Kati et dans le district de Bamako.").
