I suspect this is total disinformation coming out of Tehran, there is nothing at all about this in the Saudi News. If this story was true it would be
being discussed across the entire Islamic World, it's not. I checked with some Islamic work colleagues and they know nothing of the story, but when
they saw that the news originated out of Iran they became very skeptical very quickly.
Every year at Ramadan, Muslim communities around the world quarrel with one another about whether or not the new moon of Eid has been sighted. With so
many rival sects and authorities, and so many rumbling tummies waiting eagerly for the sighting, things tend to get a bit frantic.
Mistaking Saturn for the new moon. Impossible, I should say, however short-sighted (and hungry) you are.
The link itself comes from an Australian Muslim Friendly site called the Muslim Village,are you saying some muslims are deliberately portraying other
Muslims as ignorant
What has Tehran got to do with it ?
Read where the story comes from, it came from Iran originally. Look at Saudi news websites, there is nothing there. Iran is mainly Shia, and Saudi
Sunni, and yes one side would attack the other side over something like this to make the others look bad.
That's not taking any racist or anti-Islamic stance, that's what my Islamic colleagues patiently explained to me over the course of the day at work.
