New Debate in Bangladesh on Holiday:

Currently, Friday is our weekly holiday. Most of the businessmen are asking the care taker government to move holiday from Friday to Sunday. They consider that being Friday off, Bangladesh is really cut off for three days from the West, as they are typically closed in Saturday and Sunday. Now, it's becoming a huge debate as the pro Islamic group like Jamate Islami feels that Friday should remain as a holiday. The debate is further twisted as the Holy Quran doesn't ask for Friday to be an off day. Please read my original article in Bangla and I'll add more thoughts to this posting.
