ISLAMABAD: The Ministry of Interior Sunday refuted reports claiming that the federal government has announced a four-day holiday on account of Eid ul Fitr, saying that the authorities have yet to decide on the matter.

A fake notification, circulating on social media platforms, states: β€œIn continuation of cabinet division’s circular No 10-20/2023 Min-II dated 23rd December, it is for general information that the prime minister is please to declare 9 April 2024 to 12th April 2024 (Tuesday to Friday) as public holiday on the occasion of Eid ul Fiter.”

In a statement, a spokesperson of the interior ministry clarified that the notification circulating on the internet is “fake”.

Has Govt Announced Eid Ul Fitr Holidays?

“The federal government has not yet made any decision regarding the Eid ul Fitr holidays,” the spokesperson added.

“Whatever decision the government makes about the holidays, a regular notification will be issued.”

The Punjab government, however, announced a nine-day holiday for Daanish schools on the occasion of Eid ul Fitr, beginning from April 6.

In a notification issued on Saturday, the provincial authorities said the Danish schools in the province will remain closed from April 6 to April 14.

Traditionally, Eid holidays begin a day earlier than the anticipated date to allow individuals ample time for preparations and to participate in the joyous festivities.
