The Government of Pakistan's Province of Balochistan has announced an additional one-off regional public holiday on Saturday, October 4, 2008.

This will be the 4th consecutive day of public holidays in the Province of Balochistan, as October 1-3 is already a nationwide public holiday in Pakistan, on account of the upcoming Eid ul Fitr.

The Northwest Frontier Province (NWFP) of Pakistan announced a similar extension of the Eid ul Fitr public holidays, last week (2008-09-28).
