ISLAMABAD – Former president and Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari has felicitated Hindu community of Pakistan on eve of Holi being observed on Wednesday.
“May the celebrations today also usher in peace, prosperity and joy not only in the lives of Hindus but in the lives of all people,” he said in a message. The festival of Holy symbolises the triumph of good over evil and of light over darkness, he said.
The underlying message of this symbolism is that instead of bemoaning the darkness we should light a candle and instead of bemoaning hatred we should plant the seeds of love, Zardari said.
“I take this opportunity to assure our Hindu brethren and indeed all non Muslim minorities that the PPP stands by them in their struggle against religious apartheid.
He said that he was confident that the Hindus and all other non Muslim brethren will continue to make their valuable contributions for the prosperity of Pakistan and promoting inter-faith harmony.
