Mobile phone services will be available on Eid


Ministry of Interior has decided not to suspend mobile phone service in any part of the country on the occasion of Eidul Fitr.

According to media reports, the ministry is of the view that the suspension of cell phone service will add to the people’s miseries.

Citing the ministry’s stance, sources said that suspension of mobile services is not a solution to the adverse security situation.

According to reports, the Sindh government had requested the federal government to suspend mobile phone service in parts of the province in view of security threats, but the federal government rejected the proposal.

The Interior Ministry reportedly replied to the Sindh government that additional security measures would be adopted instead of provisional suspension of mobile phone service.

“No city will face mobile network suspension on Eid,” the ministry said.
