Diwali is the festival of lights which marks the time when millions of Hindus, Sikhs and Jains across the world celebrate the triumph of good over evil with beautiful rituals such as festive lights, fireworks, sweet delicacies, and family gatherings which starts on 25 October 2022 and end on 29 October 2022

The CRL Rights Commission whose mandate is to promote and protect the cultural, religious, and linguistic rights of all communities wishes the Hindu community well as they celebrate the Diwali festive season not only in South Africa but all over the world.
