Why Sunday is called Holiday?

According to the Bible, God created the earth and everything in six days and rested the seventh day i.e sabbath. British rule in India, which followed the christian religion, made it a mandatory leave on sunday. Even after they left, the rules stuck by . Hence sunday is a holiday .

When India was under British rule, the mill workers in India had to figure hard for all seven days of every week. They didn’t get any holiday or any quite leave to urge rest. … Sunday is that the day of the Hindu deity ‘Khandoba’. Hence Sunday should be declared as a holiday”.
