Chandigarh, November 14
Amid ongoing tensions between India and Canada, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau extended warm wishes of Diwali and Bandi Chhor Divas to Hindu and Sikh communities in Canada and around the world.
Taking to X on Sunday, Trudeau extended wishes of Diwali and Bandi Chhor Divas in two separate posts.
Across the country and around the world, millions of people are celebrating Diwali – and the triumph of light over darkness, good over evil, and hope over despair. To everyone observing this joyful holiday: Happy Diwali! https://t.co/LWYFK9xa5q— Justin Trudeau (@JustinTrudeau) November 12, 2023
Happy Bandi Chhor Divas to Sikhs across the country and around the world! I’m wishing you and your loved ones the very best today – as you come together, illuminate your homes and gurdwaras, and share meals, sweets, and prayers. https://t.co/jg92E7Kux5— Justin Trudeau (@JustinTrudeau) November 12, 2023
On Tuesday, in a couple of tweets, Trudeau shared glimpses of his participation in the celebrations of Diwali and Bandi Chhor Divas in Brampton, Toronto, Ottawa and Etobicoke.
Stopped in at Brampton’s Susan Fennell Sportsplex this afternoon and made some new friends.

There’s nothing like sharing meals and sweets on Diwali and Bandi Chhor Divas. And for families across the Greater Toronto Area, there’s no better place to get them than Samosa and Sweet Factory. Thanks for the tour today – everything looked delicious! pic.twitter.com/u15nYPxq8w— Justin Trudeau (@JustinTrudeau) November 13, 2023
