HH Sheikh Mohammed Has Wished Everyone Celebrating A Happy And Joyful Diwali
And he even created a hashtag!
The Hindu population in the UAE is between 6% and 10% so if you notice an extra surge of lights in the coming days, this is why!
Today the world celebrates Diwali, the Hindu religious festival of lights by lighting diya, (lamps) hanging lights, fireworks, sweets, family meals, gifts and more. The holiday symbolises the victory over darkness and good over evil and is celebrated every Autumn.
HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai wished the Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi a happy Diwali and asked those celebrating in the UAE to share celebrations on social media with #UAEDiwali
On behalf of the people of the UAE. I wish @narendramodi and all who are celebrating Diwali a happy and joyful festival. May the light of love and hope shine on us all.— HH Sheikh Mohammed (@HHShkMohd) November 7, 2018
I encourage you to share your pictures of Diwali celebrations in the United Arab Emirates! #UAEDiwali
