Happy Diwali from Sadiq Khan MP

I would like to wish you and your family a happy and peaceful Diwali.

Diwali reminds us of the importance of hope, and this is especially relevant this year. Even through difficult times, both in Britain and abroad, the lights and celebrations remind us of how important it is to come together; and this is just what we will be doing in my constituency, Tooting. Our local Diwali celebrations are always one of the highlights of my year, and I am sure this year’s will be no different. 

Diwali is also an opportunity to recognise the enormous contributions of both the Hindu and Sikh communities, in every area of life, from charities, to sport, to public service and of course in business. And as candles flicker in people’s homes, we will be reminded of the story of Rama and Sita—and the potential for hope and compassion to triumph over fear.

I hope the festival of lights brings a world of joy, happiness and content to you and your family.

Happy Diwali
