Let us dispel injustice and inequality President in her Deepawali message 

[November 1, 2005 - 4.00 GMT]

I am indeed happy to greet today the followers of Hinduism in our land and throughout the world.  Deepavali or the festival lights is of great significance, it is an event which celebrates prosperity which dispels ignorance and cruelty and spreads the light of wisdom.

Our collective endeavour on this, one of our National Festivals should be to dispel injustice and inequality and achieve peace, happiness and prosperity by stabilising friendship and mutual trust among various communities living in this country.  

Let us on this great day resolve to live in unity, in peace and friendship while protecting the national, religious and cultural identities of all our communities which call this country their home.

I extend my warm greetings to all our Hindu brethren who today celebrate Deepawali the festival of lights.
