Sindh Officially Announces Eid-ul-Fitr Holidays

The state government of Sindh has officially declared a five-day holiday for Eid-ul-Fitr, which is expected to fall on Saturday, April 22. This decision is consistent with the federal government’s announcement last week.

All government offices, autonomous and semi-autonomous entities, corporations, and local councils will be closed from the 21st to the 25th of April (Friday to Tuesday) to honor Eid-ul-Fitr.

At this time essential services will keep going as usual.

Federal Government Announces Eid-ul-Fitr Holidays

The federal government had already proclaimed a five-day holiday for Eid-ul-Fitr, according to a statement posted by the Ministry of Interior.

The holidays will be from Friday, April 21 through Tuesday, April 25. The statement was made following approval of the Cabinet Division’s suggestion.

Due to the new crescent being born on 20 April at 9:13 AM with an age of less than 10 hours, the Ruet-e-Hilal Research Council (RHRC) predicted in April that Eid-ul-Fitr would have a low probability of happening on 21 April.

According to Mufti Khalid Ijaz, Eid may be celebrated on April 22 after the end of Ramadan’s 30 fasting days. He stated that seeing the Shawwal moon on April 21 evening is improbable.
