Zainab Chaudry, VP of CAIR-MD and chair of the Eid Equality Coalition claims this is not about a community demanding special privileges, but about "equal rights.". So what about Buddhists and Hindus, and Baha'is and the myriad of other religious faiths, do they get their holidays off as well, in the name of equal rights? This is all about special privileges.
I wonder if Christian and Jewish school kids get their holidays celebrated in Muslim-majority countries? Oh right, they're not even allowed to worship in many of those countries, if there are even any left there after being killed or forced to flee.
