The historical Sindh Governor House in Karachi hosted an event to celebrate the Holi festival of the Hindu community.


The event, presided over by Sindh Governor Imran Ismail, was attended by lawmakers belonging to the Hindu community and leaders of the religious minorities.


Speaking on the occasion, Ismail recalled that the Founder of the Nation Quaid-e-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah after the creation of Pakistan had promised to the minorities that they would get complete freedom and rights as was the case of Muslim majority in the country.


He said the vision of the Founder of the Nation had been implemented in the present day Pakistan as the minorities had been enjoying complete religious freedom and all the basic rights.

He said the representatives of the minorities in Pakistan also got the opportunity to take part in the process of legislation.

Holi is a popular ancient Hindu festival, also known as the “festival of love”, the “festival of colours”, and the “festival of spring.”

Holi celebrates the arrival of spring, the end of winter, the blossoming of love and for many it is a festive day to meet others, play and laugh, forget and forgive, and repair broken relationships. The festival also celebrates the beginning of a good spring harvest season.
