GORKHA: Nepal Muslim Association has demanded a public holiday on the occasion of Eid, the major festival of the Muslim community. At a press meet here today, Association central chair Abdul Satar urged the government to withdraw its decision to cut-off the holiday being given on the Eid.
“The decision to remove the Eid from the calendar of public holidays has hurt the sentiment of Muslims who have felt that it has snatched their identity away,” he said. Eidul Fitr and Bakar Eid remain as the major Muslim festivals.
As he defined, Eid should not be understood as a festival of a particular community and religion, but be internalized as part of the Nepali culture. He further asserted that public holidays should be given for festivals promoting the culture and identity of people following other religions. The Muslims are celebrating the Eidul Fitr at the end of this week.
