Following the ongoing Diwali celebrations in Sukkur of Sindh province in Pakistan, over 500 Hindu households affected by flooding receive presents, food parcels, hygiene kits, mosquito nets, and shoes to commemorate the holy holiday.

In temples across the province in Sukkur, Kandhkot, Thal, Jacobabad, Mirpur Khas, Umarkot, and Tando Allah Yar, special ceremonies for the giving of Diwali gifts were concurrently organized. The families received a total of 2,000 food packages, 3,700 pairs of shoes, and 2,000 mosquito nets.

As part of Al-Khidmat’s community service initiative, presents were delivered to families in temples around Sindh before Diwali. The organization also put up a free snack store for youngsters and provided participants with prepared food.

Syed Ihsan Ullah Waqas, the senior vice president of the organization, addressed the guests at the event “All humans have the inalienable right to celebrate happiness. It is crucial that we all actively join in the festivities of those who have been denied their happiness for whatever cause.”

Syed Ihsan Ullah also praised Al-Khidmat’s team for upholding their age-old custom of promoting the joy of giving and sharing with Hindu communities in advance of the holiday. Prior research was undertaken to build a list of community members for the distribution of gifts with respect.

Waqas stated that Hindus residing in Pakistan are patriotic and contribute to the country’s growth while discussing the Hindu community’s role. As stated by Syed Ihsan Ullah, for the building of peace in society it is vital to prevent religious animosity as much as possible by fostering tolerance, inclusiveness, and religious concord.

“The enormous floods have wreaked havoc on one-third of Pakistan, as well as on Hindu communities across the nation,” he stated.

Syed Ihsan Ullah emphasized that the organization’s rescue and relief actions throughout the country, including FATA and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, were conducted without discriminating towards the flood-affected populace.

Syed Ihsan Ullah, highlighted the significance of religious celebrations in Pakistan, stating that minorities are equal citizens of Pakistan as a message to the world. All communities support one another in times of joy and sadness, and such events contribute to the promotion of a sense of safety, security, interfaith unity, and positivism in society.
