The government of Nepal, through its Ministry of Home Affairs, has finally announced that Friday, September 25, 2015, had been declared as the date of the upcoming annual non-working public holiday across the country on account of the upcoming Baqar-Eid (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 Nepalese year 2072 (April 2015-April 2016), released earlier this year (03-Mar-2015), the date of the public holiday for the Baqar-Eid (Feast of Sacrifice) non-working public holiday was set as Thursday, September 24, 2015. Therefore the aforementioned announcement represents a change, in contrast to what happened some years (14-Oct-2013), but similar to what happened other years (03-Oct-2014 and 18-Oct-2012).
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 8 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, which may explain the aforementioned move of the upcoming annual non-working public holiday across the country on account of the upcoming Baqar-Eid (Feast of Sacrifice) to adjoin a weekend.
