Pakistan's Central Ruet-e-Hilal Committee Chairman, Maulana Muhammad Abdul Khabir Azad, has announced that the Zilhaj Moon has not been sighted tonight and, therefore, that the date of the upcoming Eidul Azha (Feast of Sacrifice) would be Wednesday, July 21, 2021.

The aforementioned announcement is in line with the list of 2021 public holidays in Pakistan, as announced, late last year (2020-12-10), based on the 5-year lunar calendar developed by the National Assembly Standing Committee for Science and Technology, as announced by Pakistan's Minister for Science and Technology, Fawad Chaudhry, a couple of years ago (2019-05-19).
