Chief Minister (5k+ posts)
Prime Minister Imran Khan has once again set an example on how to be inclusive and show respect to other religions.

The premier took to Twitter and wished the Hindu community on the festival of Holi.

About Holi

Holi is a Hindu spring festival, originating from the Indian subcontinent, which was celebrated predominantly in India and Nepal, but has now spread across other areas of Asia and parts of the Western world.

The festival is a celebration of the end of winter and the start of spring. Often also known as the ‘festival of colours’ or ‘festival of love’, celebrations start on the evening of the Purnima [full moon] that comes in the Hindu calendar month of ‘Phalguna,’ which is between the end of February and the middle of March.

The festival is split in two events that take place over two days.

The night before is the Holika Dahan [burning of demon holika], in which people wear new clothes, gather around a bonfire and celebrate the victory of good over evil.

The next day is known as Rangwali Holi, in which everyone gathers for the ‘party of colours’.

They celebrate by throwing coloured powder on each other along with music and dance.

The Hindu religious festival of Holi has now become popular amongst non-Hindus as well. In many parts of South Asia and in the West, people enjoy the idea of a colour party and joyfully take part in the celebrations.


The Foreign Office (FO) also sent out their best wishes, with Spokesperson Mohammad Faisal sending out a tweet on the occasion.

Every one has the right to follow their religion but 2 Number Riasat e Madina k 2 Number khalifa ko zaroorat Kya pardi hy yeh sab karne ki. I don't expect any non Muslim to say Eid Mubarak or Ramadhan Mubarak and that is perfectly fine. Its not rocket science is it ?

Brothers, i didn't know either but it is wrong to wish Pegans and Non-Muslims on their pegan festivals.

About Holi

From Zakir Naik


About Christmas


Respecting Non-Muslims including Jews is completely Islamic but wishing them happiness on their dirty Shirk festivals. Respecting a dead body doesn't mean you go and start worshiping or tell them to be happy doing Shirk.

Just read this and then decide

It (HOLI) is originally a religious festival, and those who celebrate it – the Hindus – believe that on those days the evil gods were destroyed by the good gods! This is part of their religion, which is based on myths and idol-worship. Along with the playing with colours, dancing and singing, sweets are distributed and they congratulate one another by saying “Happy Holi”.

The saheeh texts indicate that it is haraam to participate in these religious festivals of the disbelievers. The four madhhabs and others are unanimously agreed on that.

This emphatic prohibition is because of their disbelief in Allah, and because these festivals are symbols of that disbelief. So how about if they are hostile and aggressive towards the Muslims, and transgress against their rights? This makes it even more appropriate to be averse towards them, their festivals and their religion altogether.

Allah, may He be exalted, says (interpretation of the meaning):

“And those who will not witness vanity [falsehood], but when they pass near senseless play, pass by with dignity”

[al-Furqaan 25:72].

Ibn Katheer (may Allah have mercy on him) said:

Abu’l-‘Aaliyah, Taawoos, Muhammad ibn Sireen, ad-Dahhaak, ar-Rabee‘ ibn Anas and others said: This refers to the festivals of the polytheists.

Tafseer Ibn Katheer (6/130).


Baqi, it is between you and Allah. You will be in your grave, i will be in mine. Go do whatever

It’s not about wishing but as a leader, making minorities feel secure and part of the society, at least that’s how I see it. May Allah guide us all and forgive our shortcomings.
