Marriyum Aurangzeb, the Information Minister, said on Tuesday that stories alleging a public holiday on May 25 — Pakistan Martyrs Day — are false.

The ministry turned to Twitter to share a notification about the holiday that was given a while ago, saying, “Disseminating #FakeNews is not only unethical and illegal, but it is also a disservice to the nation.”

“It is the responsibility of everyone to reject irresponsible behaviour. Reject #FakeNews.”

According to the Ministry of Information, the announcement about the holiday on Martyrs Day is a hoax.

Earlier, it was announced that the federal government had designated May 25 a public holiday.

However, according to the Pakistan Private Schools Federation (APPSF), all schools would be closed on May 25.

Board examinations will be held as scheduled, according to APPSF President Kashif Mirza, but courses will resume as scheduled on May 26.

Mirza stated that all summer holidays across the country will begin on June 15 and last on August 14, with schools reopening on August 15.

Meanwhile, the president announced that the summer holiday period in Sindh will run from June 1 to July 31.
