Govt Announces Eid-ul-Adha 2024 Holidays

The federal government has given the green light for a three-day holiday to celebrate Eid-ul-Azha from June 17 to 19. This decision means that, along with the already scheduled public holidays on June 15 and 16, there will be a total of five consecutive days off.

This approval came after the Cabinet Division submitted a proposal to Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif, who then sanctioned the extended holiday period.

The government’s goal with this extended break is to help citizens celebrate Eid-ul-Azha with their families and communities. By providing a longer holiday, they hope people can enjoy the festive occasion without the stress of having to rush back to work immediately.

Eid-ul-Azha, also known as the Feast of Sacrifice, is one of the most important Islamic festivals. It commemorates the willingness of Prophet Ibrahim to sacrifice his son as an act of obedience to God. Traditionally, this festival involves the ritual slaughter of animals, and the meat is distributed among family, friends, and those in need.

With this five-day holiday, people will have ample time to prepare for and participate in the religious and social activities associated with Eid-ul-Azha. They can visit relatives, partake in communal prayers, and share festive meals without the worry of a tight schedule.

The government’s decision to extend the holiday period reflects their commitment to supporting the cultural and religious practices of the citizens. It also aims to boost the overall morale and well-being of the people by allowing them a more relaxed and enjoyable celebration period. This move is expected to be well-received by the public, who can now look forward to a more extended and leisurely Eid-ul-Azha celebration this year.
