Srinagar, Mar. 21 (ANI): A Jammu and Kashmir based engineer has come out with a 504-year cyclical chart so that countries celebrating Islamic holidays do not face confusion over Islamic calendar dates. I have revised a lunar calendar for 504-years. The work, the approach is totally unprecedented and in my assessment the whole thing will go a long way in preserving the chaotic conditions that we face time and again, Bilal Ghulam Nabi Mir said. Welcoming Mir’’s invention, President of Jamiat-Ahle-Hadis has forwarded his project to the Religious Affairs Ministry of Saudi Arabia for further analysis. I have sent a copy (of Bilal Ghulam Nabi Mirs research work) to the Religious Affairs Ministry of the Saudi Arabia Government, and appealed to them that a great scholar from our state has done such a great job and asked them if it could be taken further, said Molvi Showkat Shah, President, Jamiat-Ahle-Hadis. The Islamic calendar follows the phases of the moon, which plays an important part in change of the dates. (ANI)
