Federal Government announces Eid ul Azha 2019 Holidays

Last month, Minister for Science and Technology Fawad Chaudhry had announced that this year, Eidul Azha will fall on Monday, Aug 12. 

Muslims across the world celebrate Eid-ul-Azha in remembrance of the willingness of Hazrat Ibrahim (AS) to sacrifice the life of his son for Allah (SWT). Believers sacrifice animals, distribute the meat among the poor and needy, and relatives, followed by festivities and greetings.

The announcement was made on the basis of a 'scientific' lunar calendar launched by the ministry in June in order to end controversies over the sighting of the moon for Islamic months.

The calendar, which can be accessed through Pakistan's "first official" moonsighting website as well as a mobile application, indicates scientifically determined dates for all major Islamic festivals/days for the ongoing and next years.

The launch of the website had attracted much opposition from religious factions, which insisted that the sighting of the moon should be done in person and regardless of scientific evidence.
