PUT your differences aside, unite and extend the bond of friendship with one another in the county.
That is the message from the Sanatan Dharm Pratinidhi Sabha of Fiji general secretary, Vijendra Prakash, as the country prepares to celebrate Diwali on Sunday.
Mr Prakash said Diwali was significant in many ways, the important one being helping those in need.
"This is an important year for the nation on a multicultural level as we prepare for elections. We should pray to goddess Laxmi for the prosperity of those behind this," Mr Prakash said.
He also advised that people exercise caution while playing with fireworks and lighting diyas.
