By on

The Interior Ministry has declared Tuesday, August 21, 2018, as a public holiday.

A statement released by the Ministry said the holiday is to mark the celebration of Eid-ul-Adha across the country.

Signed by the sector minister, Ambrose Dery, the statement said, “The general public is hereby informed that Tuesday, 21st August, 2018 which marks the celebration of EIDUL-ADHA, is a statutory public holiday and should be observed as such throughout the country.”

Eid-ul-Adha is known as the festival of sacrifice for Muslims, which seeks to honour Ibrahim (Abraham) who in an act of obedience attempted to sacrifice his son.

God provided a male sheep to be sacrificed instead.

In commemoration of this, an animal is sacrificed by Muslims across the world and divided into three parts: one third of which is given to the poor and needy, while another third is given to relatives, friends and neighbors; and the remaining third is retained by the family.
