Has Govt Announced Public Holiday on 25 May?

The Government of Pakistan has declared a public holiday on 25 May, a local news channel had claimed earlier in the day.

However, the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting has clarified that there will be no holiday on 25 May, rejecting the claim of the local news channel.



Known as ‘Pakistan Martyrs’ Honor Day,’ 25 May has been designated to honor and remember the sacrifices made by the martyrs for the nation. 

It is an occasion for the nation to reflect upon the selfless acts of the brave individuals who laid down their lives for the betterment and security of Pakistan.


On this occasion, monuments dedicated to the martyrs of the armed forces, police, and other law enforcement agencies will be adorned with floral wreaths. The main ceremony will take place at the General Headquarters (GHQ), with additional events being held at the headquarters of the Pakistan Air Force and Pakistan Navy.

The police department has also organized ceremonies in Islamabad, the provincial capitals, and Azad Kashmir to honor their fallen heroes. These ceremonies serve as a poignant reminder of the sacrifices made by our brave men and women in uniform and pay tribute to their unwavering dedication and ultimate sacrifice for our nation’s security and well-being.

  • Pak Army getting generous pays and benefits to do this job, and it is not fair to get sympathy for vandalism of statues, pictures and buildings. Just get real and do your work, not to show your authority on people which you are doing for last 70+ years. Sometimes I feel ashamed to be called Pakistani.
