Philippines End of Ramadan 2014 Date Question
 
(Posted on Thursday, July 17, 2014)

Datu Mussolini Sinsuat Lidasan, director of the Al Qalam Institute for Islamic Identities and Dialogue in Southeast Asia at the Ateneo de Davao University, has stated that the recent announcement of Tuesday, July 29, 2014, as the date of the upcoming Eid'l Fitr (End of Ramadan) annual non-working public holiday in the Philippines, was unfortunate, as "most of us started the month of Ramadan on June 29, 2014, so the 29th or 30th of Ramadan is expected to be on July 27 or 28, respectively".

The aforementioned statement follows last Monday's (14-Jul-2014) signing by Philippines President, Benigno Aquino III, of Proclamation No. 826, s. 2014, which declares Tuesday, July 29, 2014, as the date of the upcoming Eid'l Fitr (End of Ramadan) annual non-working public holiday in the Philippines. As per the aforementioned proclamation, "In order to bring the religious and cultural significance of the Eid'l Fitr to the fore of national consciousness, it is necessary to declare Tuesday, 29 July 2014, as a regular holiday throughout the country".

Last fall (30-Sep-2013), President Aquino had signed the Proclamation No. 655, s. 2013 which listed the special and regular public holidays in the Philippines for the calendar year 2014, and included a slot to be filled-in for the Eid'l Fitr (End of Ramadan) non-working public holiday added to the list of Philippines public holidays a decade ago (23-Jan-2002).
