The government of Afghanistan has declared Tuesday, April 28, 2015, as an official non-working public holiday in Afghanistan on the occasion of the upcoming annual Afghan Victory Day public holiday.
The aforementioned announcement is in line with the 2002 declaration by the interim administration of Afghanistan's cabinet secretariat (25-Apr-2002) that April 28 would be an official public holiday throughout Afghanistan, to mark the 10th anniversary of the entry of the Mojahedin to Kabul.
This public holiday, established by decision No 20 dated April 1st, 2002 (Hamal 12, 1381), corresponds to the 8th day of the month of Sowr, 1381, as per the Afghan Calendar, which had been restored earlier that year (07-Feb-2002).
