Aam Olas Episode 349
In this episode of Aam Olas, Yousaf Jan Utmanzai visited Peshawar where recently Holi festival was celebrated. As Muslims celebrate ‘Eid, so the same is the importance of Holi in Hindu culture. Some outsider’s say that Pakistan, suppresses their minority and to be more precise the Hindu’s but this video of Aam Olas Yousaf Jan Utmanzai showed how freely and openly they are celebrating their festival without any constraints and the same applies to the other minorities of Pakistan because they are also Pakistanis.
In this episode, Yousaf Jan Utmanzai participated in the Holi festival and showed viewers the aura of how they celebrate it, as there are a few ceremonies that have to take place. Moreover, Yousaf Jan Utmanzai talked to some of the people there and had some conversation. As covid-19 has increased to an alarming level in Pakistan so because of that, somehow the atmosphere of the festival is affected.
According to the organizer Dilip Kumar, usually, there would be a minimum of 500-600 people but due to the covid-19 situation in Pakistan, this year only 300 people participated. The main aim of broadcasting this episode is that our Hindu community residing in Peshawar has celebrated their Holi full of joy and happiness and they deserve it because they are a really peaceful and welcoming society.
