It was very technical for Govt. to not to allow 4 and instead keep giving Eid may fall on Tuesday or Wed therefore there has to be 1 day margin before Eid day its fall on 29th and 2 days after its a wise decision to give people an opportunity to enjoy complete sandwich the way multinationals like Siemens does to allow their employee stay home with ease...but yes we being Pakistanis never appreciate if even there is something reasonable. People who use Public Transport will even be in trouble on Monday and the Monday coming after Eid will counter similar problems so both Public and Private Organizations expects low attendance on both mondays. People of pakistan are expected to act responsible and try to avoid extra off and please enjoy the one officially announced. regards,

The holidays are long because the servants of the people, the government, does not like to work and want holidays at taxpayer's expense. Thank Allah this does not apply to the armed forces and the police... or does it?
