Message by Jeremy Corbyn on Diwali 2017
I would like to extend my warmest wishes to members of the Hindu, Jain, and Sikh communities as they come together to celebrate the Festival of Diwali.
The lighting of the Diwali lamps up and down the country signifies the central message of light over darkness and the triumph of good over evil. And I hope that this message will reach into every community.
This festival of light also provides a wonderful opportunity to once again reaffirm our unshakable commitment to diversity and to remind us of the profoundly positive contribution made by these communities to life in the United Kingdom.
My best wishes go out to everyone celebrating Diwali.
