Alleged leaked audio of a Ruet-e-Hilal committee member has sparked a new controversy.
The late-night announcement of the Shawwal moon sighting has already made the public unrestful and later the leaked audio raises question marks on the credibility of the committee under the new chairman.
The Central Ruet-e-Hilal Committee chairman Maulana Abdul Khabeer Azad on Wednesday announced that the witnesses were received from Balochistan, Azad Kashmir, and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.
“Zonal committees meet across the country and the decision was made on the basis of the witnesses received from different areas,” he said.
However, a video clip doing rounds on social media featuring a member of the committee who is on a call with someone without realizing that the microphones and cameras set for the press conference were on and recording.
The cleric can be heard saying, We are Missing Mufti Muneeb.
Check out the leaked clip below:
Here is how social media reacts to the alleged leaked audio:
But whoever will try to change Allah's Plan, Allah will surely expose the truth.
One of the member of this committee told the reality of eid and moon forgetting the place he's sitting, but the mic and camera's recorded everything.#Ruet_e_Hilal_Committee#EidAlFitr pic.twitter.com/UijuiyrLWa

It is pathetic to make the Moon sighting controversial. In such things we must follow the govt of the day guidelines. https://t.co/064FH4HJiM

If there was pressure the ulema should have resigned. Are these pious people afraid of worldly power? At this juncture, this is tantamounts to nothing constructive. https://t.co/l4Pld3MJSa

تیری یاد آئی تیرے جانے کے بعد۔ مفتی مجیب کسی کی خواہش کا آلہ کار نہیں بنتے تھے۔ کیا مذاق بنادیا ہے پہلے ملک کو پھر عوام کو اور اب اسلام کا مذاق بنا رہے۔ اللہ ان کو نشان عبرت بنانا۔ https://t.co/tFIf8UEKLg
