Federal govt announces 5-day holidays for Eid ul Adha

In contrast to a recommendation from a cabinet division that suggested three-day holidays for Eid ul-Adha, the federal government has announced that there will be five days of Eid ul-Adha holidays in the country.

The Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) has announced that the Eid ul-Adha holidays would take place from July 8 through July 12, as stated in a notification that was recently sent.

Previously, in order to obtain Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif’s authorization for the Eid ul Adha holiday break, the Cabinet Division had emailed a synopsis of the situation to him.

The Cabinet Division has recommended that the Eid ul Adha vacations be observed for a total of three days, beginning on July 10 and ending on July 12. The prime minister, Shehbaz Sharif, was provided with the summary in order to obtain his final approval.

The Eid ul Adha celebration will be celebrated all over Pakistan on July 10 (Sunday), according to the announcement made by the Chairman of the Central Ruet-e-Hilal Committee on Wednesday, Maulana Muhammad Abdul Khabir Azad.

One of the two Eid holidays that Muslims celebrate, Eidul Adha is also known as the Feast of Sacrifice. It is one of the two Eid festivals that Muslims celebrate to honor the willingness of the Prophet Ibrahim to sacrifice his son to God.

Traditionally observed by the slaughter of animals, the meat of which is distributed to members of the family as well as the less fortunate.

The devout continue, during the course of the three days that make up Eid, to slaughter their sacrifice animals in memory of the tradition that Prophet Ibrahim instituted.
