Muslims set the date for the religious festival of Eid Ul Fitr based on the observation of the new moon.
Imam Sheraz Ali of the Nur-e Islam masjid has said that the festival will not occur today as was expected.
He said this month of Ramadan has been a difficult one for local Muslims because of controversies both local and abroad during their fasting period.
He added that he was deeply disturbed by Police Officers storming a Mosque in Carapo while followers were fasting.
Imam Ali also commented on the situation in Palestine saying that there was no need for the differences between both groups to result in war.
