Gujarat govt holding programmes on Christmas to "undermine" religious fraternity: MCC

Gujarat's civil rights organization, Minority Coordination Committee (MCC), has strongly protested against the Gujarat government decision to hold government functions on December 25, 2018, which happens to be Christmas. In a letter to Gujarat chief minister Vijay Rupani, MCC convener Mujahid Nafees has said December 25 is the day on which Lord Jesus Christ was born and government programmes have been organized "deliberately to undermine the great occasion for the Christians."
Nafees added, festivals of different religions are observed across India so as to promote love, friendship and understanding among people belonging to different faiths. "However, the state government has behaved in a way that religious fraternity among different religions gets weakened. We strongly condemn this kind of attitude.”
