Lakshadweep. In Lakshadweep, it has been decided to change the weekly holiday of schools from Friday to Sunday. Due to this move of the Union Territory Administration, a huge protest has started in the Muslim-majority Islands. It is being said that there will be a conflict of madrassa system with the new time of school. The special thing is that according to the 2011 census, 96 percent of the population in Lakshadweep is Muslim. Also, the system of weekly holiday on Friday has been going on for decades.
According to media reports, an order has been issued by the Education Department of the administration on December 17, in which ‘suggestions’ have been given to amend school timings and other activities. It has been said that this has been done so that the necessary planning can be made for the maximum use of resources and proper benefit to the learners and the teaching-learning process.

Lakshadweep MP Mohammad Faizal PP said that Friday has been a holiday with schools launched six decades ago. He said, ‘This decision has been taken without discussion with the district panchayat, elected representatives or PTA. This is a one sided decision. The people of Lakshadweep will not accept it. He said the new timing would also clash with the madrassa system that continued on the island on Friday morning.
