The Federal Government of Pakistan has issued a schedule amending the dates for the upcoming 2022 Eid-ul-Fitr (End of Ramadan) public holidays in Pakistan, by expanding the 2022 End of Ramadan public holidays to run from Monday to Thursday, May 2 to 5, inclusively.

The aforementioned announcement is the same length as was the case for the past 2 years (2021-04-27 and 2020-05-17), but longer than what was announced in the "Public and Optional Holidays for the calendar year, 2022" issued by Pakistan's Ministry of Interior, late last year (2021-12-18).

Apparently the extension by one day of the upcoming Pakistani End of Ramadan public holidays was made at the last minute by Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif.
