Premier Mike Baird has sent this message to the readers of The Indian Down Under:

“It is my pleasure to wish readers of The Indian Down Under all the very best as you celebrate Diwali.

It is a testament to our multicultural society that this ancient Hindu festival of lights is now celebrated right across the country.

Diwali is an important time of the year for Hindus and symbolises the victory of light over darkness and good over evil.

The Indian community has always been forthcoming in welcoming community participation in festivals such as Diwali, and leads by example in its promotion of cultural acceptance and understanding.

I wish everyone a Happy Diwali.”
