Diwali is a Holiday for Hindus in Sindh, not for all.

Sindh Govt announces holiday for Hindu community on Diwali.

Vinay Kohli | HENB | Karachi | Oct 16, 2017:: The Sindh government in Pakistan on Monday announced a holiday on Thursday for the Hindu community on account of the religious festival of Diwali.

Diwali, religious occasion of the Hindu community, falls on Oct 19 (Thursday) this year.

According to a notification issued by the provincial government, all Hindu employees of autonomous, semi-autonomous and local councils under the administrative control of Sindh will be given holiday on Oct 19 on the occasion of Diwali or the festival of lights.

Sindh Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah has announced a public holiday on Monday for the Hindu community on account of the religious festival of Diwali.

He congratulated the Hindu community on the auspicious occasion, and lauded their services and sacrifices in the development and prosperity of Pakistan.

He said that they are with the Hindu community in their moment of joy, and will continue to safeguard the rights of minorities across the province.

The provincial government has given the Hindu community representation in parliament and other administrative departments, and has prioritised to solve their legitimate demands as well.

In March 2016, the National Assembly of Pakistan adopted the resolution that paved the way for the government to declare Holi, Diwali and Easter as public holidays for the country’s Hindu and Christian minorities. Then Hindu lawmaker Ramesh Kumar Vankwani of PML-N moved the resolution that said the “government should take steps to declare Holi, Diwali and Easter as closed holidays for minorities”.

In an Islamic Country Pakistan, most of the festivals of Hindu or Christians are conditional and declared only for the particular community. But in India, Holi, Diwali, Eid, Easter, Christmas festivals are declared as public holidays and enjoyed by all.
