New Delhi: Ramzan, the month of fasting in Islam, will begin from on Thursday as the moon was sighted on Wednesday.

A spokesperson of Delhi's Jama Masjid said the moon was sighted tonight and fasting begins Thursday.

Ramzan is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar when Muslims abstain from food and water from sunrise to sunset and join mass prayers at mosques.
