The Committee told APA that taking into account the dependence of the Ramadan Holiday on historical religious factors, it is in the competence of CMB to issue a fatwa.

“When will be Ramadan Holiday marked? The positions of Shamakhi Astrophysical Observatory and the Caucasian Muslims Board on this issue are different. In response to the questionnaires, the Committee says that Shamakhi Observatory can give information about the date of the new moon basing on mathematical calculations. It is a scientific approach. But taking into account the dependence of the Ramadan Holiday on historical religious factors, it is the competence of CMB to issue a fatwa,” – reports the State Committee.
