All Islamic religious events are according the Islamic calendar. Which is a Lunar rather than a Solar calendar. So every month starts with the sighting of the new moon. Three witnesses have to see the new moon and be witness to the fact. Then it is declared that the moon has been seen and the new month will be from tomorrow.

Due to this the whole muslim world does not have the same even on the same day. At times the dates in the Islamic calendar differ from country to country or even from one town to another.

Every year the people of the North West Frontier Province of Pakistan goes ahead one day from the rest of the country. It was declared that the moon has been sighted yesterday and hence they are all observing the fast of Ramazan today. In the rest of the country that is not so. We will observe fast from tomorrow.

What the hell is this. I am not saying that either they are wrong or we are wrong. I am saying WHAT THE HELL!
