PM wishes happy, peaceful Holi to Pakistani Hindus
ISLAMABAD (92 News) – Prime Minister (PM) Imran Khan has wished happy and peaceful Holi to Hindu community living in Pakistan on Monday. The prime minister took his tweet on Monday and wished the Hindu community a very happy and peaceful Holi, the festival of colours. “Wishing all our Hindu community a very happy and peaceful Holi, the festival of colours,” Imran Khan tweeted. The Holi festival is celebrated every year in February or March and signifies new beginnings – leaving behind winter and welcoming spring. In this joyous celebration of spring, people gather in the streets and play with colours, distribute sweets and dance together by smearing ”Abeer” or red vermilion powder and throwing colour and water-filled balloons at each other. In Pakistan, the Hindu community celebrates the festival with a play of colours and also burns logs of wood to symbolise the victory of good over evil and observe Holi Pooja. The Hindu community also throws colours blended in water, powdered colours and splash colour-filled balloons in what is also the first major festival of Hindus in the year. On Sunday, the Balochistan government announced a two-day holiday (March 9 and 10) for the Hindu community to celebrate Holi.
