PESHAWAR: The Khyber Pakhtukhwa Assembly has unanimously approved the resolution flouted by Jamaat e Islami (JI) leaders Humaira Khatoon and Haji Sirajuddin Khan regarding reinstatement of Friday holiday.
The resolution demanded that the Friday holiday should be revived instead of Sunday across the country. According to the Islamic teachings, Friday has big importance and it is called chief of other days.
“Practically, the holiday on Sunday makes it two days’ holidays in one week as staff of public sector does not work after 12:00pm on Fridays. This also makes business, economy and government affairs lethargic,” it read.
The resolution has demanded form the federal government to reinstate the Friday holiday immediately, so that people could offer Friday prayers with more concentration.
