well, i feel Friday is a Special Day in Islam
muslims spend friday morning in worshipping
reading Quran , Zikr etc

making friday a working day will not allow muslims to do extra worship on Friday.

wowowowowowo..... again a 1st from UAE. no other place in the world got this... means 2.5 days free time for the people to visit malls, restaurants, cafes, tourist spots and whole lot of activities...
the bottom line means the local market will jump in spending during these off days and ultimately the economy will hit the sky !!!!
what a move..... congratulations... hope here the locals will be enlightened how to create market spending instead of restricting even to drive !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
