No. 2/4/2014 which actually cancels the Iqbal Day Public Holiday in Pakistan for the current calendar year 2015.

The expected observance of November 9, the birth anniversary of Allama Muhammad Iqbal, as a non-working public holiday in Pakistan, was in line with the "expected dates for public and optional holidays for the calendar year 2015" published by the Government of Pakistan at the beginning of the current year (12-Jan-2015), as the aforementioned Circular F. No. 2/4/2014 points-out ("Public holiday declared for November 9, 2015, via the Ministry of the Interior circular number 2/4/2014 dated 2nd January 2015, is hereby canceled ab initio").
