The German state Bremen allowed the right of religious holidays for Muslims.      

Bremen state government said, they had decided to change the "Sunday and Holidays regulation". The Muslim festival of sacrifices, ramadan feast and the day of ashura will be seen equal to the religious holidays of Christians and Jews. The new right will give workers and students the freedom of participation on this day.      

It will be the first step after the signing of the historical contract between Bremen State Government and the Islamic community on January 15, 2013.      

The new right will allow Muslims to take a day off on the first day of their religious feast. The new agreement will be presented at the State Parliament of Bremen as soon as possible.
