Govt Announces 5-Day Public Holidays for Eid ul Fitr 2023

The Government of Pakistan has announced a five-day public holiday for Eid ul Fitr 2023. The Ministry of Interior announced that the holidays would start on Friday, April 21, and go through Tuesday, April 25.

Earlier, the Ruet-e-Hilal Research Council (RHRC) predicted that this year, Saturday, April 22, will likely be observed as Eidul Fitr across the country.

If the crescent is sighted on Thursday evening, then Eidul Fitr will be celebrated on Friday, April 21. However, he added, it was unlikely that the moon will be sighted the same evening.

The council predicts that the moon will be born on Thursday, April 20, at 9:13 am Pakistan time. The moon should be visible on the evening of Ramadan 29 if its age at sunset is greater than 19 hours. It was noted that it would be less than 10 hours in all areasĀ of Pakistan.
