as part of the ethnic cleansing by arjun singh, manmohan singh and sonia gandhi, hindu holidays are being deleted.
so mohammedans have as many as holidays as hindus.
christists have 2/3rds as many as hindus.
these guys are totally wiping out hinduism. while taking money from hindu temples and giving them to build churches (in samuel reddy's AP) and to go on hajj (all over the place). this is grossly unfair.
i think these people are looking to finish off hinduism before their government falls in the next election.
UPA's holiday politics Holi quashed
January 14, 2007 issue
The UPA government has removed Holi and Janmasthami
from the list of gazetted government holidays. They
are now only on the list of Restricted Holidays.,
along with 32 other festivals and sacred days.
The government's move is being seen as yet another
please-minorities policy. Holi, Dusshera and Diwali
are among the most important Hindu festivals. Over the
years, Holis has come to represent a social rather
than religious occasion, with non-Hindus also joining
in the celebrations. By taking these two festivals
from the gazetted list, the government has made a
statement. Now both strictly Hindu festivals and
Muslim festivals are even in number.
According to the present list, there are three
holidays for Muslim festivals (id-ul-Juha, Muharram
and Milad-un-nabi), three for Hindus (Diwali, Dussehra
and Ram Navami), three national festivals
(Independence Day, Republic Day and Gandhi Jayanti),
two of the Christians (Good Friday and Christmas),
Buddha Purnima, Guru Nanak Jayanti, and Mahavir
This Year, Holi falls on a Sunday and therefore, the
people may not feel the pinch of losing a holiday.
