Happy diwali wish Pakistani celebrities

Given that 1.92% of Pakistan’s population comprises of Hindus and the country houses the fifth largest population of people belonging to this ancient religion, it only seems logical for Pakistanis to join in on the festivities with their Hindu country men and women.

Prime Minister Imran Khan took lead in wishing the Hindu community in Pakistan a happy Diwali

Other government officials who followed the Prime Minister included the Minister for Human Rights Shireen Mazari and Minister for Information and Broadcasting Fawad Chaudhry.

Scores of Pakistanis joined the Prime Minister on Twitter to send out Diwali greetings to all those celebrating.

Despite tensions on the Line of Control, soldiers on both sides of the divide got together to exchange sweets, making our heart yearn for peace in the South Asian sub-continent.

Restaurants and other businesses are taking Diwali seriously this year (FINALLY!) and offering opportunities to Pakistanis to bond over the festival of lights.

Pakistani celebrities are also wishing Hindus across the world a happy Diwali through their social media handles.

Mahira Khan who is not in the country these days made it a point to post a gleeful picture on Instagram to wish “…a very, very happy Diwali.”

Then there is the new, first-time dad, Shoaib Malik who sent out Diwali greetings with this simple, heartfelt tweet.

Sisters Mawra and Urwa Hocane are often the first celebrities to react to absolutely anything eventful and it was no different this time!

Comedian Shafaat Ali also sent out wishes from his side.
