The government of Nepal, through its Ministry of Home Affairs, has announced that Monday, October 6, 2014, had been declared as the date of the upcoming annual non-working public holiday across the country on account of the upcoming Bakra Eid/Eid ul Joha (Feast of Sacrifice) annual non-working public holiday of Nepal.
In the gazetted list of official non-working public holidays in Nepal for the Nepalese year 2071 (April 2014-April 2015), released earlier this year (13-Apr-2014), the date of the public holiday for the Bakra Eid/Eid ul Joha (Feast of Sacrifice) non-working public holiday was set as Sunday, October 5, 2014. Therefore the aforementioned announcement represents a change, in contrast to what happened last year (14-Oct-2013), but similar to what happened the year before (18-Oct-2012), as well as more recently (01-Oct-2014) in India.
Muslim public holidays were added to the official list of Nepalese public holidays for 2008 (01-Oct-2008), after years of protests by the Muslim minority in Nepal (30-Jun-2007), and maintained for the last 7 years (09-Sep-2010 and 20-Sep-2009).
Note that, after a brief interval in 2000-2001 when a 2-day weekend was tried (13-Jan-2001), Nepal now observes a 1-day weekend on Saturdays.
