ISLAMABAD (HRNW) – The government has decided only three holidays after Eidul Azha falls on Friday (August 1).

According to sources, the government is not giving additional holidays this time.

Eidul Azha will fall on Friday (August 1) and public holidays will be given from Friday to Sunday.

On Tuesday, Central Ruet-i-Hilal Committee chairman Mufti Muneebur Rehman announced that the first day of Eidul Azha will be celebrated across Pakistan on August 1 after no reports were received of credible sighting of the Zilhaj moon.

The Ruet-i-Hilal Committee chairman said, “We have reached a consensus that the moon for Zilhaj was not sighted, and Eidul Azha will now be celebrated across the country on August 1.”

The announcement was preceded by meetings of the central moon-sighting committee and other zonal committees in all provincial capitals of the country.
