If ever proof was needed of Muslims demanding their own way and the threat to our futures from Islam then this is it. Demanding that EID should become a Bank Holiday. Stealth jihad is happening all around us, Islamization is a serious reality that we should all be aware of. Attempting to get EID made a Bank Holiday and Islam part of law is one step closer to sharia.
Britain could soon get its first Muslim and Hindu Bank Holiday days after a petition to Downing Street reached 119,000 signatures.
Any petition to the Government that hits more than 100,000 signatures must be debated in Parliament under rules established in 2011.
If a new Bank Holiday weekend is created it would be the first non-Christian religious holiday in the UK.
Diwali is celebrated by Hindus in the Autumn as the ‘Festival of Lights’.
Eid is held at the end of Ramadan when Muslims break their fast.
The petition, on epetitions.direct.gov.uk, was created by Jon Timmis calls for the Muslim festval Eid and Hindu festival of Diwali to become public holiday days.
Mr Timmis says doin gthis would go some way ‘to help recognise the importance of these faiths to many within the community’.
The petition is due to close on July 12th but is understood to have already been passed to the Backbench Business Committee, which considers the suitability of petitions for debate.
Vinod Popat, chairman of The British Hindu Voice, said he didn’t think it was a good idea- especially as Diwali is not given a set date and depends on a lunar calendar,.
‘I don’t think it is a very good idea. How many festivals are there for other religions. Should they all be marked with a public holiday?,’ he told the Sunday Express.
Britain currently has eight bank holidays each year – the second lowest in the world. Mexico has the lowest.
