Today is 1st Moharram, the first day of Islamic calendar, which is a gazetted holiday in this country. But the local authorities, decided to postpone the holiday to Wednesday (tomorrow) for public sector offices and Thursday for private sector offices.
What kind of discrimination is this, if holiday needs to be declared then it should be for everyone on same date. Further, why need to postpone the holiday, isn’t it is supposed to be on 1st of Moharram?
I wonder, when the Islamic calendar will be decided to facilitate the holidays combining with weekend to make long weekend. I think very soon !!
Anyways, who cares about sighting of moon, right?
