Srinagar: Ramazan moon was not sighted in the region and the holy month will begin in Kashmir on Saturday.
The Ramazan crescent was sighted in Saudi Arabia, however, where the fasting month will begin on Friday, Arab News reported. It was also not sighted in Iran where Ramazan will begin from Saturday.
This year, the holy month will be observed amid the coronavirus pandemic, which has brought life in most parts of the world to a halt. Kashmir too, is struggling to cope with the challenge by trying to ensure social distancing to curb the spread of the virus with business activities and religious congregations on hold.
