Looking for the moon in Malaysia

Malaysian cartoonist Lat is really funny. The latest cartoon suggests that the squabble between former PM Dr Mahathir Mohamad and successor Abdullah Ahmad Badawi is taking centrestage although Muslims in the country should be thinking more about the Hari Raya celebrations.

Muslim astronomers would try to sight the moon before declaring the actual day of Hari Raya. In this cartoon, they see the squabbling leaders instead of the moon!
