Hindu devotees have been reminded of the teachings of Lord Krishna, a major deity in Hinduism, and the fact that all religions teach us to practise love and peace with one another.

The comment came from Attorney-General and Minister for Economy Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum at the Krishna Janamastmi celebrations for the Tamavua Ramayan Mandali at Namadi Heights, Tamavua, on Friday night.

“This occasion to mark the birth of Lord Krishna allows us to reflect on our character and how we can improve ourselves,” he said.

“The centre of any religion is love and we should apply it in our daily lives.

“We must do our duties without fear or favour and what is right and just.”

Mr Sayed-Khaiyum, while highlighting the teachings of Lord Krishna, said that whichever background one came from everyone should be able to fulfill their duties to the best of their abilities.

“Whatever duties you have you must do it without any desire to be rewarded for it,” he said.

Mr Sayed-Khaiyum also held a talanoa session with the devotees where he explained and gave clarifications on the 2018-2019 National Budget and how people could benefit from the new initiatives put in place.

Meanwhile, chairperson of Tamavua Ramayan Mandali Satend Prasad said the Government was providing great service and equal rights to all Fijians where no one was regarded less than the other.

Mr Prasad said they were grateful for the Government for helping and assisting them in many ways, especially in the education sector where their children could study well.

“The Government in many ways is working to improve the livelihoods of all Fijians.

“The Attorney-General is the first minister who has come to our settlement and we are thankful for his presence,” Mr Prasad said. Edited by Epineri Vula
