On Tuesday, Information Minister Marriyum Aurangzeb refuted reports suggesting the existence of a public holiday on May 25, known as Pakistan Martyrs Day, stating that such reports are false.
The Ministry, through its official Twitter account, shared the previously issued notification regarding the holiday and stated, “Spreading #FakeNews is not only unethical and illegal but also detrimental to the nation. It is the duty of every individual to denounce irresponsible actions. Reject #FakeNews.”
