Muhammad Auon | 11 years ago | Reply I THINK THIS DECISION IS ACCORDING TO THE NEED OF THE TIME. AND I HOPE SO PAKISTAN WILL BE COME OUT VERY SOON......INSHA ALLAH FROM SUCH TYPE OF PROBLEMS
HASSAN JALIL CH. | 11 years ago | Reply In my personal opinion the decision of two holdays may be beneficial for short period of time but in the long run it could be harmful as per practice in vogue in the Govt offices, where almost 80% employees came late and waste the time in gossip with one another on different matter and take cups of tea and gone. So it must be revised on 31 July because i think it is not a suitable decision for schools. 8am to 4pm will be a long and labourious period for students.
