Nitish Govt Faces Criticism: Hindu Holidays Reduced, Muslim Holidays Increased| Oneindia

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) criticized Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar for allegedly reducing the number of school holidays during Hindu festivals while increasing those for Muslim festivals.

Reports suggest the Bihar education department's 2024 holiday calendar eliminated Hartalika Teej and Jitiya holidays while extending Eid al-Fitr and Eid al-Adha (Bakrid) holidays to three days each.

BJP MP Sushil Modi accused the government of an "anti-Hindu" stance, prompting Union Minister Giriraj Singh to claim it was operating on "Islamic religious beliefs." The move sparked outrage, with calls for reinstating Hindu festival holidays.
