“I want to wish the Hindu, Sikh, Jain and Buddhist communities a very happy Diwali and Saal Mubarak. This festival of lights serves as an important reminder for all of us that love and light will always prevail over hate and darkness, and that knowledge and reason will invariably overcome intolerance and ignorance.
