Diwali Celebration In Maryland

Colors and lights mingled with joy during our traditional Diwali festival. The festival of lights was held at the BAPS Shree Swaminarayan Mandir in Beltsville, MD on November 10th, 2007. Diwali is widely celebrated worldwide not just by Hindus but various other people. MQM USA'S Central Organizer, Ajaz Siddiqui was traditionally welcomed at the celebration at the BAPS Mandir by Raj Rathor, chairman of the Karachi Hindu Welfare Foundation and BAPS volunteer member.

We repectfully thank Altaf Bhai for sending a message toward the Hindu community in the Karachi. Also we thank Ajaz Bhai for coming to our Diwali celebration at BAPS Swaminarayan Mandir.

Ultimately Diwali is a time of peace and harmony. Today we pray for peace, prosperity, and happiness for our family and friends. This is the time to forgive and forget. Lastly, our Guru Pramukh Swami Maharaj , wishes us all a Happy Diwali.
