Sindh declares April 4 as a public holiday.

Zulfikar Ali Bhutto’s “martyrdom anniversary” will be observed as a public holiday by the Sindh government, according to a notification released on Thursday.

According to a statement, “The Government of Sindh declares April 4, 2023 (Tuesday) as a Public Holiday on the occasion of Shaheed Zulfikar Ali Bhutto’s (Ex-Prime Minister of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan) 44th Martyrdom Anniversary, throughout the Province of Sindh.”

All offices, autonomous, semi-autonomous entities, corporations, and local councils that are under the administrative jurisdiction of the province government of Sindh would stay closed, with the exception of necessary services, in accordance with the notification.

Bhutto, who was born on January 5th, 1928, was an accomplished politician who, on November 30th, 1967, founded the Pakistan People’s Party, which is presently run by his maternal grandson, Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari.

On April 4, 1979, nearly two years after General Ziaul Haq imposed martial law and toppled his administration, Bhutto was executed by hanging following a contentious trial.

His death was classified as “judicial murder” by PPP.
