A land of diverse ethnicities and cultures, Diwali in Malaysia is the most prominently celebrated festival of the Hindus that constitute about 8% of its population. Though Islam is the official religion here, with three-fifths of the population being Muslims, Malaysia is a multi-religious society that celebrates Diwali with just the same enthusiasm and zest as India. Malaysia observes a public holiday for one day where all the communities and races partake in this beautiful festival of lights to brighten up each other’s homes as well as lives! Sarawak and Federal Territory of Labuan are the only places in Malaysia that do not celebrate Deepavali due to their very less Indian population.
