Lahore High Court Extends Market Timings Until Eid ul Adha 2024

With Eid ul Adha 2024 just around the corner, the Lahore High Court has made a significant decision to accommodate the festive shopping rush by extending market hours. Justice Shahid Karim announced that markets across Lahore will now stay open until 1 AM on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays, and until midnight on other weekdays. This extension will be in place until Eid ul Adha, which is expected to begin on June 17, 2024.

This decision was made during a court hearing and is aimed at easing the shopping experience for residents as they prepare for one of the most important holidays in the Islamic calendar. The extension of market hours allows more flexibility for shoppers, enabling them to purchase everything they need for the celebrations without the usual time constraints.

In addition to this, the Lahore High Court also ordered the reopening of the Bagh-e-Jinnah water channel, adding to the city’s preparations for the festive season. This move is expected to enhance the aesthetic and recreational appeal of the area, making it more enjoyable for visitors during the holiday period.

Furthermore, a report from the Punjab Food Authority was reviewed during the court session, indicating a comprehensive approach towards ensuring public amenities and safety in the run-up to Eid.

The announcement aligns with the traditional surge in shopping activity that precedes Eid ul Adha, as families stock up on essentials and gifts. The Central Ruet-e-Hilal Committee is also set to meet in Karachi to sight the Zilhajj moon, which will officially mark the start of the month leading up to Eid.

With these measures, the Lahore High Court is ensuring that residents can enjoy a more convenient and festive atmosphere as they prepare for the celebrations of Eid ul Adha.
