Islamic International Dental College & Hospital Islamabad’s Circular Regarding Holiday on 9 November 2016 (Wednesday) – Latest Update
Iqbal Day Holiday on 9th November, 2016 (Update)
The Interior Ministry of Pakistan has not issued any notification regarding holiday on Iqbal Day (9th November, 2016). The news hype over the social media and shared on some of the websites declaring it as holiday are totally wrong and misleading.
The unreadable notification shown over social media seems to be an old one (of 2015) which read as:
The alleged news was shared on social media showing an unreadable notification and an statement in Urdu that the Government has restored Iqbal Day holiday.
“Public Holiday earlier declared for 9th November, 2015 vide Ministry of Interior circular number 2/4/2014-Public dated 2nd January, 2015 is hereby cancelled ab initio.”
That notification clearly speaks the cancellation of holiday awarded from 2015. Therefore, unless a clear cut notification of Interior Ministry, there is no holiday on Iqbal Day.
