Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s Royally Screwed Up
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s Twitter feed has been a hot pot of aggressive attacks from members of Canada’s Indian community after he used an Arabic word to wish them a happy Diwali.
The Diwali festival of lights is traditionally observed by Hindus, Sikhs, Jains and Buddhists, to celebrate the triumph of good over evil. But it’s not of particular significance to Muslims, whose religious texts are in Arabic. Nevertheless, Trudeau used the Arabic word for “blessed” in wishing people a happy Diwali on Twitter this week.
“Diwali Mubarak!” Trudeau tweeted on Monday. “We’re celebrating in Ottawa tonight. #HappyDiwali!” The tweet included a photo of Trudeau lighting a candle, while wearing an Indian sherwani.

To add insult to injury, PM @JustinTrudeau wears a Mogul Sherwani to sully ‘Shubh Deepavali’ with ‘Diwali MUBARAK’.

It’s interesting to see the Prime Minister fail so hard when his government spends hundreds of thousands to maintain a perfect image. This is a continuing trend it seems as the Liberals fail falling poll numbers and mounting scandals.
