Pakistan - Zardari felicitates Hindus on Holi

Former President Asif Ali Zardari on Saturday felicitated the Hindu community of Pakistan on eve of Holi being observed on Sunday.
"May the celebrations also usher in peace, prosperity and joy not only in the lives of Hindus but in the lives of all people," he said in his message issued here.
Zardari, who is also co-chairman of Pakistan People’s Party (PPP), said the festival of Holi symbolized the triumph of good over evil and of light over darkness.
"The underlying message of this symbolism is that instead of bemoaning the darkness we should light a candle and instead of bemoaning hatred we should plant the seeds of love," he added.
He assured the Hindus and all non-Muslim minorities that the PPP stood by them in their struggle against religious apartheid.
He said he was confident that the Hindus and all other non-Muslim brethren would continue to make their valuable contributions for the prosperity of Pakistan and promoting inter-faith harmony.
