Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi announced that Thaipusam holiday is extended to Federal Territory of Kuala Lumpur and Putrajaya. So, this coming Wednesday (23rd Jan) is a holiday for KL. Wooohooo.
Ok… it is a public holy day thus it should be a public holiday too. Sometime we wonder why it was not a public holiday in the first place.
Get your diary and check how many public holidays are there for the Indian Hindus in the calendar as compared to other race/religion? Any other Hindu’s public holiday for all states? Please let me know.
Thanks to our PM for declaring it…. but why not a public holiday like Wesak Day for all 14 states in Malaysia? Some states have no Hindus? Hmm…
