LAHORE – Social media in Pakistan remained abuzz today with reports of "four holidays in all public and private educational institutions amid security threats".

According to a notification being circulating online, the government has decided schools and other educational institutions will remain closed from January 25 to January 28.

The notification, which is yet to be verified, read that "all Educational Institutions (Schools, Colleges and Universities) in Punjab (Public & Private) will remain closed from 25 January 2024 till 28th January 2024 in the wake of security threats to control the situation of law and order in the province."
