Sayeeda Warsi: Best wishes for Diwali
Party Chairman Sayeeda Warsi has sent her best wishes to Hindus and Sikhs across the country as they celebrate Diwali this week.
The festival symbolises the triumph of good over evil, light over dark, and knowledge over ignorance.
The Prime Minister David Cameron marked the event, which is known as the festival of lights, with a special event in Downing Street last week.
Baroness Warsi said: “The principles of Diwali – friendship, goodwill and hope – are things all people in this country, of every faith and none, can truly identify with.
“I love seeing the lights and the fireworks every year. They really capture the spirit of Diwali, which is a time to come together and celebrate the joys of life.
“So I want to wish everyone the very best at this special time of year.”
