The festival Eid al-Fitr 2024 will be celebrated on Thursday, April 11, 2024 in many parts of India. Muslims in India from Lucknow, Karnataka, Delhi and other parts will be fasting one more day as the Eid al-Fitr crescent moon was not visible on the night of April 9.

The official dates were confirmed by several mosques, including Delhi's Jama Masjid and Fatehpur Masjid. The news was also confirmed from Karnataka, and a similar announcement was made by the Lucknow's Markazi Chand Committee Eidgah.

Other parts of India, like Kerala and Ladakh, will celebrate the festival of Eid al-Fitr on April 10, as the Shawwal crescent moon was viewed there. The dates of the festival are decided by the sighting of the moon, which leads to different dates in different parts of the same country.

The region's grand Mufti Nasir-Ul-Islam announced on April 9 that Jammu and Kashmir will be celebrating the 2024 Eid al-Fitr on Wednesday as the moon was already sighted here.
