  1. Very bad!!!. I idealise Iqbal as he was a great sufi. His ideologies are far greater then Quad-e-azam. He was a great sufi as well and his literature gives spiritual insight to all who follow and read his poetry. Why cant we have a holiday on the bases of being a great sufi saint??? What is there to loose if the govt sanctions a holiday?
    Government should respect him sanction a holiday.

  5. We probably enjoy most holidays in the world, “I think we should have some working days as well….:)


  6. this is an idiotic decision… shame on such government orders , they are insulting our legends…


  7. It is just simple nawaz govt policy to finish holidays from calender


  8. Real reason of cancel the holiday
    Government is under the influence of the industry owners, particularly export oriented factory owners that pressurizing the government to cut down other benefits to workers as government has increased the minimum wages of poor workers. This government act will deprive the right to benefits of poor laborers. Our law said
    Public Holiday Work Compensation
    If an employee works on a public holiday, he is paid at 300% of the rate of his normal wages (normal wage for working on public holiday + paid substitute holiday + one day’s paid compensatory holiday). (section 49-I of Factories Act 1934)
