Kyrgyzstan to celebrate Kurman Ait on June 17

Kurman Ait will be celebrated in Kyrgyzstan on June 17. The Cabinet of Ministers approved this day as a public holiday.

Kurman Ait falls on Monday. This means that Kyrgyzstanis will have three days off in a row — June 15, 16 and 17.

Kurman Ait is one of the sacred holidays of the Muslims, which unites people and allows them to realize themselves as a single entity. The holiday symbolizes fidelity to duty, wisdom, tolerance, readiness for self-sacrifice for the sake of high ideals. On this day, the Muslims are required to perform the rite of sacrifice.
