The 280th Urs Mubarak of the revered Sufi saint, Hazrat Shah Abdul Latif Bhatai, will commence today in the Bhit Shah region of Matiari district.
Sindh Governor Kamran Tesori will officially initiate the 3-day Urs celebrations. Special security measures have been put in place to ensure the safety of the pilgrims. Section 144 has been enforced throughout the district during the Urs event.
To mark the occasion of Urs, the provincial government has declared a public holiday across Sindh today. This means that all government and semi-government institutions will be closed throughout the province. The preparations for the three-day Urs event have been finalized, and pilgrims from distant areas have also begun to arrive.
