Diwali is a festival of lights that brings all communities together. But there is one place where we will find people dividing each other even on this auspicious festival and that place is popularly known as the internet.
Candian PM, Justin Trudeau, wished everyone on this festival on Twitter but his words didn’t go well with the Twitterati. This is what he had tweeted,

Some people, instead of valuing that a Canadian PM is celebrating Diwali with the same passion as us, they felt offended because he used the word “Mubarak” with Diwali. I mean, how narrow-minded have we become?

Mr Trudeau. Please don’t disrespect Hindus. We would love to celebrate our most sacred festival without your Arabic “Diwali Wishes”.Advertisement

Justin, Please correct it now! its Shubh Diwali or even Happy Diwali. Please don’t use Mubarka when you address Hindu.

Justin .. are you a Muslim, It’s Shubh Diwali. Do I now say Christmas Mubbarak to you ? Or what ? 😕😐

Word to the wise : It’s “Shubh-Deepavali”, (Auspicious Deepavali), and NOT “Diwali Mubarak”. “Mubarak” is Arabic, not Indian. @CanadainIndia

You are awesome. Not sure why ppl getting offended by “Mubarak” Respect the sentiments behind, Mubarak just an Arabic word for blessing
