St. Kitts and Nevis Prime Minister Dr. Timothy Harris has sent this Diwali greeting to the Hindus. In a statement he said:

I wish to take this opportunity to commend the significant contributions of the Indian community in advancing our nation-building efforts and prosperity agenda here in St. Kitts and Nevis, and to say that the Diwali festivities present an opportune time for your further involvement, particularly in uplifting the most vulnerable members of our society.

It is my privilege to wish a Happy Diwali to the Hindus, Jains, Sikhs and Buddhists who are celebrating the religious festival of lights around the world and here in St. Kitts and Nevis, as well as in our neighbouring countries of Guyana, Suriname, and Trinidad and Tobago.

This Diwali holiday and always, the Government and people of St. Kitts and Nevis stand in solidarity with you, for although we speak and worship in different ways, what motivates us – such as our bright hopes for the world and our ambitious dreams for our families’ futures – remains the same.

Saint Kitts and Nevis is a dual-island nation situated between the Atlantic Ocean and the Caribbean Sea.
