MNA Feature Desk: The holy month of Ramadan will begin in the country on Sunday as the moon was not sighted anywhere in Bangladesh’s sky on Friday.

The moon-sighting committee of the Islamic Foundation reported that the moon of the month of Ramadan could not be seen in Bangladesh.

Minister of Religious Affairs Motiur Rahman chaired the meeting, which was held at the Baitul Mukarram in Dhaka.

The Moon Sighting Committee also decided that Laylat-al-Qadr would take place on June 22.

However, Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar and is observed by Muslims worldwide as a month of fasting (Sawm) to commemorate the first revelation of the Quran to Muhammad according to Islamic belief.
