The government of Nepal has declared a public holiday on Thursday to celebrate Eid-ul-Fitr, a major festival marking the end of Ramadan for the Muslim community. The decision was announced by Rudra Prasad Pandit, joint secretary of the Ministry of Home Affairs, and aligns with a notice published in the official gazette last year.

Eid-ul-Fitr, also known as the “Festival of Breaking the Fast,” is one of the most important holidays in the Islamic calendar. It follows a month of fasting and prayer during Ramadan and is a joyous occasion filled with special prayers, celebratory feasts, and the exchange of gifts among loved ones.

The public holiday was declared following a recommendation by the Muslim Commission. This decision demonstrates the government’s commitment to recognizing and accommodating the religious observances of Nepal’s diverse communities.
