This conflict in start date
This conflict in start date is due to different time zones. USA is about 11 hours behind many Asian countries. So the start of any day (date) is entirely different around world. Ramadan start is dependent on sighting of new moon (Islamic months are calculated based on moon). In case of confusion and conflict, It is strongly recommended that what so ever scholars recommend, go with that. In USA many Islamic organizations work and they have their own methods to follow. None of them is wrong because they have logic behind their decisions. It is easy to follow Saudi Arabia as they are considered centre of Islamic world due to presence of holy places and being place of birth. Please note this is my personal opinion and does not intend to offend or hurt anybody.
