All open and tuition based schools crosswise over Sindh will stay shut on Wednesday (today) because of Iqbal Day.
The declaration came regardless of the government dismissing a proposition for announcing November 9 an open occasion.
A year ago, the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz's government had annulled general society occasion. In any case, it was declared as an official occasion by the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) drove Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) government.
The day is praised every year on November 9 to pay tribute to Pakistan's national artist Allama Muhammad Iqbal, who was conceived on the day in 1877, in Sialkot. Various projects, including classes, are being held to check the day.
