Eid ul Adha is one of the two mega events celebrated by the Muslims across the globe, and so it is done in Pakistan with full zeal, respect and devoutness. This event gives a broad message of togetherness, brotherhood, peace and cares all around the world. Muslim countries worldwide witness public holidays during Eid-ul-Adha and even in the non-Muslim countries, Muslims are granted holidays so they can fulfil their religious rituals. This year Eid ul Adha will be celebrated on 22nd August, and as everyone was waiting for the holiday schedule, it’s finally out.
The caretaker government issued the notification of Eid ul Adha holidays several days back and it seems Pakistanis nationwide aren’t happy with it. It should be noted here that as per the notification, three holidays were announced on this religious occasion; previously they have been four in number over the years. One holiday is for the Hajj sermon and three areas Eid ul Adha holidays. But this time Eid’s third-day holiday is not been allotted. People have been voicing against the notification and also asked the caretaker government to revise the decision as Eid-ul-Adha is a three-day event both religious and culture wise as well.
A fake revised notification was also floating on the internet which suggested four holidays on this religious occasion. The caretaker government has declined all such claims and has stood by their three-holiday announcement.

dear Ministry of Interior: do recommend revising dates of #EidulAzha holidays in #Pakistan to permit people to observe qurbani on third day of eid, instead of 9th ZilHajj. it is not easy finding a butcher for the first two days. @Asad_Umar @ImranKhanPTIAdvertisement
