Luvin Nair started this petition to @Johor's Sultan Ibrahim Ibni Almarhum Sultan Iskandar and

Johor's Sultan Ibrahim Ibni Almarhum Sultan Iskandar declared the the change of the state's rest days to Friday and Saturday instead of Saturday and Sunday from 1st January 2014.

This was announced during the investiture ceremony on Saturday in conjunction with his 55th birthday. He also added that the decision was made after receiving feedback from various quarters and to allow Muslims to perform their religious obligations on Friday in a more peaceful manner.

The minus point of this change was that even though Johor government offices, banks and schools are operational on Sunday, the rest of the surrounding economic centres in Kuala Lumpur and Singapore are not working on that day and its not as effective as the usual weekdays.

In addition, when all the family members are enjoying their rest days on Sundays, those who are studying in government institutes and working in government sectors couldnt be there for their family as its a working day for them. There is no more Family Day on every weekend. This separates apart the relationship among family members (parents, husband, wife, kids) and relatives from one another.

Other than that, Friday is the free parking day in Johor. Not everyone in Johor are working in government sector hence this speciality is not fully used by the Johorians. 

Furthermore, as Malaysian citizens we think that it was still peaceful on 2013 as it is now.

Hence, as Johorians, we strongly request Johor's Sultan, Johor state government and Malaysian government to consider our sincere petition that to change the current Johor's official rest days back to Saturday-Sunday.

Thank you. 

"Muafakat Johor" 

Regards, Johorians
