Junaid Azim Matoo, the Mayor of Srinagar has greeted the people on the occasion of Diwali, the festival of lights.
In his message, the Mayor said that the Diwali is a five day festival that marks the victory of good over evil, light over darkness and knowledge over ignorance.
“May the light of Diwali remind us that from darkness there is knowledge, wisdom and truth. From division there is a unity in common bonds of empathy and compassion. From isolation, there is a community in the connections we share as we look out for one another and hope dream and believe in possibilities,” Mattu said while greeting people on the occasion.
