Govt Announces Two-Day Muharram Holiday

The federal government has announced a two-day public holiday on July 16 and 17, 2024, to observe Ashura. During this time, the Pakistan Army and Civil Armed Forces will be deployed across the country to ensure security. Details of troop deployment will be coordinated with relevant authorities.

Provincial governments have proposed a week-long suspension of social media to prevent the dissemination of hateful content, but a final decision has not yet been reached. The Interior Ministry will consult with provinces before making any decisions regarding internet services.

These measures are being implemented in anticipation of maintaining peace and security during the observance of Ashura.
