Popalzai saw moon on 5th

On 26th December 2006, Mufti Shahbuddin Popalzai of Masjid Qasim Ali Khan got late in moon sighting, as it was already 5th of Zil Haj and government already announced Eidul Azha to be celebrated on 1st January 2007.

Yet Mufti Popalzai decided to advance Zil Haj date and announced that today is 6thnot 5th Zil Haj and Eidul Azha will be celebrated in NWFP (Modern KP) on 31st December 2006, i.e. a day before rest of Pakistan.

Hence moon was sighted on 5th but it became 6th instantly.
