#HappyDiwali becomes top trend on Twitter in Pakistan

Diwali, the most significant festival of the Hindu community, is today and everyone seems to be happy. A large number of people took to Twitter to extend felicitations to all those who are celebrating, including Hindus, Jains, Sikhs and Buddhists.

Since its a festival, people go shopping with families and prepare various food items at home as part of celebrations. They also decorate the mandirs inside their homes.

The Hindu Diwali story varies across different parts of India, with interpretations involving different deities and demons. In north India, people light rows of clay lamps to celebrate the story of King Rama’s return to the ancient city of Ayodhya after his victory over Ravana. In south India, it is celebrated as the day Krishna defeated Narakasura.

On the same night that Hindus celebrate Diwali, Jains celebrate a festival also called Diwali to mark the attainment of moksha by Mahavira while Sikhs celebrate Bandi Chhor Divas to mark the release of Guru Hargobind from a Mughal Empire prison. Meanwhile, Newar Buddhists, unlike the majority of Buddhists, celebrate Diwali by worshiping Lakshmi.

Wish You Very #HappyDiwali
