The government of Nepal has announced that Monday, August 20, 2012, had been declared as a non-working public holiday on account of the upcoming Eid-ul-Fitr (End of Ramadan).
The aforementioned announcement is in line with last spring's (2012-03-29) gazetted list of official non-working public holidays in Nepal for the Nepalese year 2069 (April 2012-April 2013).
Muslim public holidays were added to the official list of Nepalese public holidays for 2008 (2008-10-01), after years of protests by the Muslim minority in Nepal (2007-06-30), and maintained for the last 3 years (2010-09-09 and 2009-09-20).
