68 years since its Independence, Pakistan has never considered the main festivals of religious communities Hindus and Christians to be a mandatory national Holiday. 2016 brings a ray of happiness for the minorities in Pakistan. Holi, Diwali and Easter are declared as mandatory national holidays from this year. We look forward to seeing many warm and wonderful memories in the years to come.
