Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan, on Saturday, extended Diwali wishes to the Hindu citizens of his country. He took to his social media account for the same.
Imran Khan wishes Hindus on Diwali
Imran wrote on his accounts, “Wishing all our Hindu citizens a happy Diwali.” As per Geo News, Pakistani Hindus are celebrating the festival across the country by decorating their homes and temples with colors and lights. It is further said that special poojas would be held at temples across the country, and sweets would be distributed to people. Imran Khan also celebrated the festival with a few members from the community.
The Hindu population in Pakistan
Hindus are the biggest minority community in Pakistan. Although the official numbers say that around 75 lakh Hindus live in the country, members from the community say that the number is 90 lakhs. Apart from Karachi, Lahore, and other major cities, festivities will also be held in Matiari, Tando Allahyar, Tando Muhammad Khan, Jamshoro, Badin, Sanghar, Hala, Tando Adam, and Shahdadpur. The majority of the Hindu population is in the Sindh province in Pakistan.
Twitterati trolls Imran Khan
Just a day after his army killed 10 Indians at LoC, Imran Khan came forward and wished the Hindu citizens of ‘his’ country a happy Diwali. It did not seem to add up, and considering the oppression the Hindus go through in Pakistan, Imran’s wishes did seem like for the sake of it. Twitteratti wasted no time in pointing this out and made sure the comments section was filled with many trolls. There were a few comments like “You could have whatsapped them!” as well. Here are a few more tweets in this regard.
