NHS: Celebrate Diwali Safely

Celebrate Diwali Safely

As Diwali draws upon us at the end of the week, celebrations for Hindus, Jains and Sikhs up and down the country will be very different from usual. Sadly, this year because of the national restrictions, communal worship in temples and large community celebrations will not be able to go ahead. The government guidance reminds us that the most important action we can all take to control the virus and protect our families is to celebrate Diwali at home, only with the people we live with and support bubbles.

Rajnish Kashyap of The Hindu Council of Britain says; “Lockdown should not dampen the spirit of Diwali, Diwali is all about victory of light over darkness and good over evil. We are going through some difficult times, but we will get through this together. We advise that the community adhere to the rules and celebrate only with those you live with and your support bubble. Only attend temples for individual prayer.”

Digital technology has made it easier for us all to comply with the government guidelines during Diwali, with many temples and gurdwaras broadcasting acts of worship where families can join in the festivities virtually.

So, this Diwali, remember let’s continue to look after one another. Celebrate safely by staying at home this year to reduce the risk of spreading the virus.
