Bad weather and dust made observation hard, according to the TV channel.
Muslims observe Ramadan by fasting during sunlight hours - eating a pre-dawn meal called the suhoor, and breaking the fast at dusk with the iftar. This year, Ramadan is expected to begin on Wednesday, May 16, 2018.
The holy month begins with the sighting of the new moon based on the Islamic lunar calendar, after which the religious authorities of Muslim majority countries will declare the start of Ramadan.
Since the moon has not been sighted in the Middle East, experts are firm that the crescent would neither be visible today in the United Kingdom and other parts of Europe.
Islamic scholars are firm that if the Ramadan moon is sighted in most parts of the Middle East today, then it would be viewed in Southeast Asia, South Asia and the Indian subcontinent tomorrow.
