Petition Make the day of Diwali a public holiday

Hindus form the third largest religious group in UK. As Diwali is one of the most important festival for Hindus, similar to Christmas, we would like it to be a Public Holiday.

More details

Diwali is a symbol of hope for Hindus, and for believers is connected with universal compassion, inner joy of peace and awareness of unity. Legislation to make Diwali a nationally recognised holiday is being considered in the United States of America, on similar grounds this petition is being put forward.
