On the occasion of Iqbal day, all offices of government under Kyber Pakhtunkhaw, will remain closed on 9th November, 2015. The notification was issued last day on the request of Imran Khan.
The KPK government will observed a day off in the memory of Allama Muhammad Iqbal, the poet of East. However, federal government cancelled the earlier announced holiday.
The Iqbal day is observed to remember the ideology and message of Iqbal that helped the people for independence of Pakistan.
This year, for the first time, the holiday became an issue. The notification issued in the start of year was declared ab initio by the Interior Ministry. However, the majority of people remained confused even today on the stand of government.
