London, Oct 22: British Prime Minister David Cameron has described former Libyan dictator, Colonel Muammar Gaddafi's death as victory of good over evil in the true Diwali sentiments.
Speaking at a Diwali party hosted by him at his official residence of 10 Downing Street, Cameron said: “Diwali being the festival of a triumph of good over evil and also the death of a devil, perhaps there is a little resonance in what I am saying tonight.
The death of Col Gaddafi is the victory of good over the evil in true Diwali sentiments.”
Responding to it, the acting Indian high commissioner to the UK Rajesh Prasad, said “in this very difficult global economic situation I hope very much that Goddess Lakshmi takes a benevolent look at all of us and showers us with her blessing.”
Cameron, who was seen folding his hands, his eyes closed, in prayer, later said that of all the parties he hosted, his children found the Diwali party “by far the most exciting”.
He, thereafter, joked: “They've almost converted.”
