Earlier today, the government of Nepal announced in a notice published in the Nepal gazette, that tomorrow, Tuesday, July 29, 2014, had been declared as a non-working public holiday on account of the upcoming annual Eid-ul-Fitr (End of Ramadan) non-working public holiday in Nepal.

The aforementioned announcement is in line with last spring's (2014-03-02) gazetted list of official non-working public holidays in Nepal for the Nepalese year 2071 (April 2014-April 2015).

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 5 years (2013-08-08, 2012-08-17, 2010-09-09 and 2009-09-20).
