Indonesian Idul Adha Public Holiday Confusion Again

Indonesia's second-largest Muslim organization, Muhammadiyah, has once again announced a different date for the upcoming Idul Adha (feast of sacrifice) than that announced in the official list of 2011 Indonesian public holidays.

Muhammadiyah, Indonesia's second-largest Muslim organization, and Nahdlatul Ulama, the largest Islamic organization in the country, have often (2007-10-12 and 2006-10-24, for example) announced differing dates for the Muslim festivals observed in Indonesia.

A commonly agreed date for the 2009 Idul Adha (2009-11-18) had led to short-lived hope that these discrepancies were a thing of the past.
