Hindus across the world — as well those in Pakistan — are celebrating the festival of Diwali. The five-day festival of lights is typically celebrated by socialising, exchanging gifts and lighting oil lamps or candles to symbolise the victory of light over darkness. Many of our celebrities and politicians took to social media to wish a happy Diwali to all those celebrating the joyous occasion.

Prime Minister Imran Khan posted his Diwali greetings on Twitter.

Actors Osman Khalid Butt and Armeena Khan and designer Deepak Perwani also wished a very happy Diwali to all those celebrating.

Actors Tooba Siddiqui and Zhalay Sarhadi took to Instagram Stories to wish their followers as well.

And so did RJ Sabah Bano Malik and activist Muniba Mazari.

Designer Umar Sayeed wished his friends and followers on Instagram.

Writer Fatima Bhutto and Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly Shehbaz Sharif also posted on the occasion.

Cricketer Shahid Afridi also wished everyone a happy Diwali.

We wish all those celebrating a very happy Diwali as well!

@Luvladoo . No one can really force others to believe what they want others to believe. Our values, our thinking, our narratives are amazing.
