Those observing Holi festival today, are urged to pray for those families who have lost their loved ones during the Christchurch terror attacks.
In light of the Christchurch massacre attacks, the Shree Sanatan Dharam Pratinidhi Sabha cancelled Holi celebration at a national scale.
President Sarju Prasad says while national celebration has been cancelled, Hindus will celebrate it on a much smaller scale.
“We have decided that we will also forgo our national celebrations but life should go on and people have been urged to celebrate on mandali level and domestic level here and there.”
The Sanatan Dharam Pratinidhi Sabha will also hold a prayer meeting at Civic center in Labasa this Saturday for victims and the grieving families of the Christchurch tragedy.
Meanwhile, TISI Sangam President Sadasivan Naicker shared similar sentiments.
“We also want to support our brothers. We have lost loved ones and it is very sad and TISI Sangam also sympathies and sends a condolence and we pray to almighty to give strength and courage to overcome the sad loss of loved ones.”
Holi is a Hindu festival of love or colors that signifies the victory of superior over immoral.
On the eve of Holi, Holika Dahan takes place.
The ritual symbolizes the victory of good over evil and also the triumph of a true devotee.
