Deepavali symbolizes the spiritual victory of good over evil - Justice Minister

Justice Minister M.U.M. Ali Sabry, PC in a Deepavali message states “Today marks an important day for followers of the Hindu faith in Sri Lanka and all over the world. Deepavali is celebrated during the Hindu Lunisolar month of Kartika, and is a time to celebrate the Hindu values of compassion, selflessness, harmony, tolerance and respect. Deepavali is known as the ‘Festival of Lights’ and symbolizes the spiritual victory of light over darkness, good over evil, and knowledge over ignorance.

The message adds: “This is a timeless message. Yet, at a time that the world is experiencing its hour of darkness, this message brings hope that we will get through this together and that the light will overcome the darkness. Sri Lanka is a land like no other, where despite the many obstacles and challenges, people of different faiths, ethnicities and cultural heritage co-exist in a spirit of togetherness, bringing the hope of a better tomorrow.”

“I wish you a joyous and a peaceful Deepavali.”
