Govt denies notice of 6 days ‘ vacation as false

ISLAMABAD: On Friday, the state declared a notice of six-day Muharram holidays that social media rounds are false.

Sharing a picture of the letter, the state published “no such instructions” to the federal government’s formal Twitter account.

“The attached notification is Fake and no such instructions have been issued by Government of Pakistan,” read the tweet.

The fake notification misled the people by stating that  the government has announced six holidays commencing from September 6th  to September 11th.

The federal  and all the provincial governments have have announced two holidays  (Monday and Tuesday) for Ashura which is observed on Muhrram 9th and 10th.

According to a notification issued by  the Interior Ministry on Thursday, the offices will be closed at 3:00 pm on Friday, September, 6 to allow the employees to express solidarity with the families of martyrs  on Defence and Martyrs Day.
