Basant in Lahore was finaly declared to be a social festival. The government declared it would be celebrated under its patronage, which is unbelievable. Nowhere did the government mention that the Eid festival would be celebrated under its patronage. It is most obvious that the Eid of most people would also be merely flying kites. It appears that the government is giving more importance to festivals that are not even a part of our culture.
