The Chairman of Pakistan's Central Ruet-e-Hilal Committee, Mufti Muneeb-ur-Rehman, has announced that the upcoming Eid-ul-Azha (Feast of Sacrifice) annual non-working public holidays will be celebrated beginning on Monday, October 6, 2013, as the Moon of the month of Zil-Hajj was not sighted anywhere in Pakistan, last night.
The aforementioned announcement is in line with what was announced in the "expected dates for public and optional holidays for the calendar year 2014" published by the Government of Pakistan at the beginning of the current year (09-Jan-2014).
Last year (14-Oct-2013 and 10-Oct-2013), the Ministry of the Interior of Pakistan had extended, from 2 days to 4 days of public holidays, the 2013 Eid-Ul-Azha (Feast of Sacrifice) public holidays in Pakistan for the calendar year 2013. No indication has yet been given as to whether this will be repeated this year.
