The document announced a three-day Eid holiday on July 21, 22, and 23, sending a wave of concern among public and private employees.
It is understood that the federal government has not yet issued any notification in this regard.
Previously, Geo News had wrongly reported that the Interior Ministry would announce a three-day public holiday from July 20 to 22 with a working day on the third day of Eid. The channel has not issued a correction as yet.
Earlier, there were also reports that government employees will enjoy a nine-day holiday on Eid ul Adha, with five official leaves from July 19 to 23, clubbed between two weekends.
