The Ministry of Interior has declared Monday, June 17, 2024, as a public holiday to celebrate Eid-ul-Adha, also known as the festival of sacrifice.

This year, Eid coincides with Sunday, June 16th. Since it would fall on a weekend, the Ministry of Interior in a statement declared the following Monday a holiday to ensure everyone has the opportunity to celebrate.

This is a statutory public holiday and should be observed throughout the country.
