ISLAMABAD: A lawmaker belonging to Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) tabled a resolution in the National Assembly seeking restoration of Friday as weekly holiday.

The resolution called upon the government to restore the weekly holiday of Friday since all Muslim countries observe this day as weekly public holiday.

“Pakistan is still following footprints of Britishers… By not observing public holiday on Friday, we are deprived of blessings of this day and facing disasters,” said the resolution tabled by by JI’s MNA Tariq Ullah and was supported by lawmakers of Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam Fazl (JUI-F).

Although treasury benches did not oppose the opposition party resolution, MANs were seen divided over the suggestion.

In February 1997, the then Prime Minister of Pakistan, Nawaz Sharif, declared Sunday, instead of Friday as weekly holiday. - Samaa

    جمعہ کی چھٹی نامنظور، ظہر کی نماز کیہں بھی ادا ہو سکتی ہے، جمعہ کیلئے خاصا احتمام کرنا پڑتا ہے یوں جمعہ کی چھٹی دنیاوی امور(ٹرپ، ولیمہ اور دیگربڑے کام) کیلئے بے معنی ہو جائے گی۔ مثلا پنڈی سے لاہور جاتے ہوئے جمعہ کہاں پڑیں گے،لڑکے دوسری شہر کھیلنے گئے ہیں یا شادی یا کسی بھی فیملی ایونٹ کی تمام سرگرمیآں چھوڑ کرجمعہ مشکل ہو جائے گا۔ چھٹی کا مقصد غارت ہو جائے گا۔ بس بیٹھ کر جمعہ کیلئے لٹکے رہیں کیونکہ جمعہ تو خاص وقت اور مسجد میں ہی ہر صورت ادا کرنا ہے۔ نماز تو ویسے بھی معاف نہیں۔۔لہذا چھٹی صرف اور صرف اتوار
