Ottawa: Canada’s Prime Minister, and ostensibly everyone’s favourite foreign leader, Justin Trudeau took to social media on Tuesday to extend greetings on the festival of Diwali. However, his slightly different take on the greeting has some netizens up in arms.

In a photograph posted by the Canadain Prime Minister on his Twitter account, Trudeau, sporting a black sherwani, is seen lighting a ceremonial lamp during celebrations at the Indian High Commission in Ottawa, which was attended by Indian High Commissioner Vikas Swarup.

And along with that photo, Trudeau wrote, “Diwali Mubarak! We’re celebrating in Ottawa tonight. #HappyDiwali!”



A few people on the social media were quick to point out the “error” in the tweet, reprimanding him for saying the Arabic word along with the greeting.
