Happy Dewali

To all the Indians of Hindu religion

To all MIC members, PKR and DAP Indian members

To all the Malaysians who celebrates this auspicious occassion,

To all my dear friends and students,


To non-Hindus, it is necessary to understand the relevance and significance of this festival.

For some people, Deepavali celebrates the triumphal return of Lord Rama to Ayodhya;

Some Hindus celebrates the festival to venerate Goddess Laxmi - the Goddess of wealth and prosperity.

Light has always been a symbol for all that is positive in our world. The festival thus celebrates the glory of light. At a metaphysical level, Diwali leads us to the light of truth and knowledge.

No matter what the story or the reason behind the celebration, the light of the shimmering divas symbolize the subjugation of ignorance and immorality.

The festival commemorates the destruction of evil powers, which subdues humanity, and it announces the triumph of good over evil.

Whatever the interpretations or the mythology may be, the underlying principle remains the same, the emergence of good and truth after the subjugation of evil and untruth.

Maverik san
When u said Happy Deepavali to all indian, just enough
No need to add in MIC , PKR or DAP
Festival of light does not reflect to festival of politic
I think we shall celebrate as human festival instead of money festival (politic human life)
Pls do not mixed with politic way of celebration.

Thank you
