I support Diwali celebrations. Any reason we don’t celebrate Id? Listening to a USI call about Diwali. Let’s not forget there are 200M Muslims in India. I am an atheist. I celebrate celebrations not religion.

It’s because 80% of India is Hindus. Majority of the workforce will be off and it’s a national holiday.

We respect all religions but Diwali is equivalent to Christmas in the west where it’s a national holiday.

I meant we as Deloitte celebrating Diwali

Why celebrating Diwali has to do with any number of Muslims or even Hindus in India? Diwali is not anti to any religion nor is any other celebration be it Eid, Christmas, etc. If I am a Hindu I will celebrate my festival no matter wherever I am in the world.!

Again
My point is about Deloitte holding Diwali celebrations (not about the country)
Feels like Deloitte is giving preferential treatment to 1 religious community over another

I celebrate Eid and not Id (for heaven’s sake) and it’s the same as Diwali for me. Yes, I am areligious and apolitical and an aethist. The celebration is about ppl, oneness, forgetting your differences and not about religion. Don’t wait for others to recognize a celebration. You do your part to celebrate that’s all
