The President of Tajikistan, Emomali Rahmon, has signed into law the bill "On public holidays".
The current amendments are but the latest bout in President Rahmon's decade-long crusade to make Tajikistan more secular, by reconsidering the "socially-divisive celebrations which have a negative impact on the people's living standards" (1999-07-09).
The Tajik Law on Public Holidays, was last amended in 2009 when a, November 24, Flag Day holiday was added (2009-11-12), and before that, in 2005, when 3 working day public holidays were declared, namely: The Day of the Tajik Language (July 22), Mehrgon(Harvest holiday), and Sada (2005-12-30).
