Hindu devotees across Sri Lanka will celebrate the festival of light, Deepavali today.

Issuing his Deepavali message, President Maithripala Sirisena notes that Deepavali, which is celebrated by Hindus across the world, symbolises the victory over darkness, knowledge over ignorance, good over evil and hope over despair.

The President also added that, just as lighting a lamp, eliminating darkness, may the light of Deepavali, lighten the heart of all with the collective yearning for reconciliation and may that be the common wish of all human-beings belonging to every civilisation.

Moreover, Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe’s Deepavali message stresses on the importance of committing towards selflessness as opposed to personal aspirations.
