The government rescheduled the holiday of Shab-e-Barat on March 30 instead of March 29.

Abul Kashem said that the holiday of Shab-e-Barat is basically dependent on moon sighting. The holiday will be on March 30 as the Shab-e-Barat is on March 29. 

On the other hand, the holiday was scheduled for March 29. Now the file is under process for rescheduling of the holiday. It will be published as gazette after getting approval.

Muslim devotees spend the night of the holy Shab-e-Barat, at mosques and homes offering prayers, reciting from the holy Quran and seeking blessings of Allah for long life, peace, progress and happiness for themselves.
