Celebrating Eid-ul-Fitr in Ladakh: A Time of Joy and Togetherness

The Administration of Union Territory of Ladakh has declared that the holiday for Eid-ul-Fitr will now be observed on the 10th of April, 2024 (Wednesday), instead of the previously scheduled 11th of April, 2024 (Thursday). This change ensures that the celebrations align with the lunar calendar, which determines the sighting of the moon to mark the end of Ramadan.

The official order, issued by the General Administration Department, reflects the administration’s commitment to honoring the cultural and religious practices of its citizens. The decision to modify the holiday date demonstrates respect for the traditions and observances of the Muslim community in Ladakh.
