Karachi and Sindh Schools to Close for Chehlum of Imam Hussain (RA) 2023

Date: September 06, 2023

In an official announcement, both public and private schools across Karachi and the entire Sindh province will observe a holiday on Thursday, September 7, in honor of Chehlum of Hazrat Imam Hussain (RA). The decision to close educational institutions on this day was made by a steering committee within the provincial education department.

Chehlum, which falls on Thursday, marks the culmination of a 40-day mourning period following the martyrdom of Hazrat Imam Hussain (RA) and his 72 companions in the Battle of Karbala on the 10th of Muharram in the year 680AD. This sacred observance is met with deep reverence and religious fervor throughout the province.

To ensure the safety and security of Chehlum processions, comprehensive security arrangements have been put in place.
