Parliament plea for Muslim and Hindu bank holiday in UK calendar
by Geraint Jones
Parliament may have to consider introducing Muslim and Hindu bank holidays.
An online petition requesting a day off for Hindu festival Diwali and Muslim celebration Eid has attracted more than 119,000 signatures and has three months more to run.
Under the rules of the e-petition scheme, introduced in 2011, once the 100,000 signature mark is passed it should be considered for a House of Commons debate.
