After receiving criticism from the people for announcing a brief break for Eid celebrations, the federal administration has decided to extend the Eid-ul-Adha holidays.
The government has, as of the most recent development, approved an additional day off on Wednesday, June 28, making the holiday for Eid-ul-Adha a five-day break overall, including the weekend.
The administration had announced earlier that individuals who worked five days a week might have a two-day break on June 29 and 30, which are Thursday and Friday. On the other hand, people who worked six days a week received a three-day holiday (Thursday, Friday, and Saturday) from June 29 to July 1.
According to a recent notification, the holidays will now begin on June 28 and end on July 2, including the weekend.
The moon was seen on Monday for the Islamic month of Zil Hajj, according to the Central Ruet-e-Hilal Committee, the organization in charge of moon sightings. On Thursday, June 29, Pakistan will observe Eid-ul-Adha, also known as the Festival of Sacrifice.
The Committee met in Karachi under the direction of Maulana Abdul Khabir Azad to observe the crescent moon of Zil Hajj after sunset.
