New Delhi:

President of Markazi Chand Committee Maulana Khalid Rasheed Firangi Mahali on Sunday said that Eid will be celebrated on Monday in India. Shahi Imam of Delhi's Jama Masjid, Syed Ahmed Bukhari has also confirmed that Eid will be celebrated across country on Sunday.

Saudi Arabia, Qatar and the UAE have celebrated Eid-ul-Fitr on Sunday to mark the culmination of fasting and holy month of Ramzan.

"Eid-ul-Fitr will be celebrated tomorrow as the Eid moon was sighted in Bihar, West Bengal, Assam and Uttar Pradesh today," Bukhari said.

Ramzan, the ninth month of the Islamic lunar calendar, is observed as a fasting period by Muslims who abstain from food and water from sunrise to sunset.

Eid-ul-Fitr depends on the sighting of the moon and its celebration varies in different countries.

In Bangladesh, India and Pakistan, the celebrations for Ramadan started a day later than other countries and so the Eid's moon in these countries will be seen a day later than the other countries.
