Every year, students are granted the right to take off from school for religious holidays such as Christmas, Rosh Hashana, and even Yom Kippur. Yet, even as the Hindu inhabitance in America grows, the government has yet to recognize the universal hindu holiday Diwali as a day to take off!
It is not only a huge damper on the diversity that the United States gloats we have, but an inconvenience to those hindus who are required to be in school that day.
Make Diwali a National Observed holiday!
The Recognize Diwali a National (observed) Holiday petition to US Congress was written by Shreya and is in the category Civil Rights at GoPetition.
