Prime Minister Narendra Modi greeted the nation on the beginning of the holy month of Ramzan. PM Modi took to Twitter to wish the nation on this holy day. Through his tweet, Prime Minister hoped that this month enhances the spirit of peace and harmony. “Greetings on the start of Ramzan. May this holy month enhance the spirit of togetherness, peace and harmony across the world,” he posted on Twitter. Ramadan, is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar, ends with Eid ul-Fitr and normally depending on the calendar it lasts either 29 or 30 days, with the sighting of the new moon as the indicator.
Yesterday there was an uncertainty over the start of the month as the Saudi Arabian Supreme Court on Thursday had issued a statement, saying that the Ramzan crescent moon has not been sighted, reported news agency PTI. Later, the court held another hearing on Friday evening and the beginning of the month was announced after spotting the moon.
Prime Minister Modi is also set to address the nation later in the day through the 32nd episode of his programme Mann ki Baat. BJP chief Amit Shah has decided to listen to the latest episode with slum dwellers in R K Puram of Delhi. He will be accompanied by Shyan Jaju. “We have instructed our party workers to connect people with Mann Ki Baat and get them to listen to it. Our party president will visit Ravidas Ashram under the same programme,” Jaju told PTI.
“The party has promised to provide housing facilities to all by 2022. The policy of ‘Jahan Jhuggi Wahin Makan’ given by BJP will be boosted by Shah’s visit as he could advise the Centre about it,” said a senior Delhi BJP leader.
