Make Sunday an optional holiday

As Sunday is holiday in many countries, it becomes difficult to communicate with other countries for business purposes on Sunday as the offices remain closed. And alternatively, as Friday is a holiday in Bangladesh, other countries can not communicate with us on that day of the week. I believe this is a loss of millions of dollars. I feel Sunday should be an optional holiday for such businesses who would rather work on Friday than Sunday. Schools and other businesses can still remain closed on Fridays and Saturdays. I believe this will also reduce traffic jam.

Western countries have Sunday off as their religious praying day. As a Muslim country, we should have Friday off. Before you write something you should think behind reason.
