Private Schools Management Association (PSMA) of Karachi has announced that private schools in the vicinity of Shahrah-e-Faisal, Numaish Chowrangi & M.A Jinnah Road will remain closed on Friday 29th September on account of 8th Muharram.
It is being hoped that soon other schools will also announce holiday for Friday as many small processions will be carried in other parts of the city which may cause trouble for students & their parents.
Many private schools have already declared that school will remain close on 29th September. The reason for this decision is that many students travel from one vicinity of the city to another which will be affected if the school remains open.
So far no announcement has been made by Karachi University (KU) and other private or government colleges and it is hoped that they will be open on 8th Muharram.
