ISLAMABAD (August 17, 2012): Eid-ul-Fitr is expected to fall on August 20 in Pakistan.Eid ul Fitr liely on August 20 2012 in Pakistan
According to Meteorology Department, the first moon of Shawwal is expected to be visible on August 19 instead of 18, thus Pakistani Muslims are likely to have a 30-day Ramazan.

“Weather conditions are going to be partially cloudy in the upper areas making moonsighting highly unlikely”, the Met officials said.

The position and angles of the new moon at the time of sunset are also favourable for moon-sighting on that day, the they added.
