Thiruvananthapuram: Muslims in the State will celebrate Eid-ul-Fitr Saturday, marking the end of the holy month of Ramadan spent in day-long fast, prayers and charity.
The Kazis declared that Friday would be the 30th day of Ramadan and Eid-ul-Fitr will be celebrated Saturday as the crescent moon was not sighted Thursday after Iftar.
Kazis like Panakad Syed Hyderali Shihab Thangal, Kanthapuram A P Aboobacker Musliyar, Kozhikode Kazi Syed Muhammed Koya Thangal, Cherussery Zainudheen Musliyar and Palayam Imam Shuaib Maulavi, besides others, decided late Thursday that since the moon was not seen, Eid will fall on Saturday.

All state government offices will be closed Friday and Saturday.
