Sindh extends Eid ul Azha Holidays

Asia Eid al-Adha

The Sindh government on Friday announced it is extending the public holidays for Eid ul Adha by a day, until Monday.

Last week, the provincial government had announced holidays from Friday July 31st till Sunday August 2nd, following a similar announcement by the federal government.

According to a notification by the services department, across Sindh, Monday August 3rd will also be observed as a holiday.

The announcement comes after Chairman of the Ruet-e-Hilal Committee, Mufti Muneeb-ur-Rahman, on Wednesday said that Prime Minister Imran Khan should declare the third day of Eid ul Adha a holiday as it is traditionally a three-day celebration.
