Should kids get muslim holidays off???
A Turkish leader in Germany wants all kids to get off for muslim holidays...
The leader of the Turkish Community in Germany (TGD) Kenan Kolat said Tuesday that non-Muslim schoolchildren should be allowed out of school for an important Islamic religious holiday.
“I think it would be good if one for one day, such as the Eid ul-Fitr following Ramadan, to let all of the kids off,” Kolat told daily Berliner Zeitung.
“It would be a sign of tolerance,” Kolat went on. “The Muslim children already have this day, also known as the Sugar Festival, off.”
Kolat said that such a gesture would be a sign that German society is engaging with its immigrant population.
