2020 Public Holidays Pakistan Service

The above is the list of 2020 public holidays declared in Pakistan which includes federal, regional government holidays and popular observances. We also provide Pakistan holiday calendar for 2020 in Word, Excel, PDF and printable online formats.

Pakistan has 19 holidays in a year. The nation has Christian and Muslim religions. Both of these religions have their specific holidays. During Christmas and Easter, only Christians get to celebrate the holidays. The majority of the holidays are Muslim based. Some public holidays last for a day, while others go for as long as two weeks. The government’s role in these regulations is critical as it is supported and motivated by Islamic laws.

The nation gets to celebrate the holidays on the day on which they appear. Those that occur on Sundays and Saturdays are observed on those particular days. The government has the power to prolong and change religious dates when the situation calls for it. The nation’s public holidays are influenced by religion, social affairs, and democracy. The timing and dates of these public holidays are made following the Gregorian calendar. The Islamic calendar influences religious public holidays. Employees are given off days, depending on the nature of their jobs, contracts, and agreements. Since workers are given paid off days on public holidays, those who work on these holidays are paid extra or given an extra day off at a later date.

The public holidays are regulated and amended by the Ministry of Interior of the Federal government. Business during these public holidays is slow as retail shops close and entertainment joints close early. However, some stores remain open and offer their customers incredible offers and discounts as a way to celebrate the holidays.
