Govt announces four-day holiday for Eidul Fitr
Shakeel Qarar Published June 8, 2018
The interior ministry on Friday announced a four-day holiday on the occasion of Eidul Fitr.
According to a notification issued by the ministry, the holidays will run from June 15 to June 18 (Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday).
Eidul Fitr celebrations mark the culmination of the Holy month of Ramazan during which Muslims all over the world observe 30 days of fasting.
In Pakistan, Eid festivities are marked by last-minute late night shopping with shopping malls and markets bursting at the seams with energetic crowds.
Eidul Fitr is likely to be on June 15 or June 16 this year.

Out of 4 days (Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday), one day is a normal non-working day anyway. So basically just 3 days. Good and a right step this time for shorter vacation period.

Govt must better reannounce notification with the addition of Thursday 14 june because addition will provide a relief to those workers / employees working at far distance from their home. Eid holidays must be from thursday to Saturday.
