Four days without newspaper!!!!

From last Friday to Monday, no newspaper has been published in Bangladesh. All print media houses were closed for Eid holidays. Journalistic activities in televisions and radios ran well. New media has also performed nice job to fulfill the thirst of the readers. However, many people like the Finance Minister of Bangladesh, Abul Mal Abdul Muhit wants newspapers even in holidays. Mr. Muhit has given the idea to publish newspapers at least in limited scale.
Many journalists have not liked the idea. They say that every day they work from morning to midnight. If media houses remain open even in religious festivals, journalists will not be able to pass time with their friends and family even in the festivals.
Some of them say that they need break from work and these religious holidays are the perfect time for it.
Some newspapers have updated their websites during the holidays. However, that was very little. Online media houses did their best.
I know that many people who like to know news or search for news, they logged in news websites. I live with news world. My media house was also closed and I logged in news web sites to know what is going on.
After four days, when we are preparing next day’s newspaper the news room is over loaded with news.
