A video is viral on social media wherein the Grand Mufti of Kashmir Nasir-ul-Islam is stating that Eid-ul-Fitr will be celebrated on Saturday.

To confirm the authenticity of the video, Mufti Nasir-ul-Islam said there is no statement from his side as far as the celebration of Eid on Saturday is concerned.

“How can I make a statement before a day when no attempt of moon sighting took place,” he said.

“The video that is viral is actually a pre-recorded one and is meant for the Doordarshan. It’s been a practice that DD records my two statements beforehand and airs one of them as per the situation,” he said adding that there were over 10 people in the room and somebody recorded his statement on his cell phone and made it viral.

“It was an attempt to create confusion and I reiterate that I have not issued any statement about moonsighting,” he said. (KNT)
