The festival erased all Hindu-Muslim, India-Bangladesh divisions. One of the best cricketers of all time in Bangladesh and number one all-rounder in the world Shakib Al Hasan (sakib al hasan) came to inaugurate a Kali Puja in Kolkata.
Diwali is a festival celebrated all over the subcontinent. Shakib flew from Bangladesh to join the celebration of victory of light over darkness and good against evil. The all-rounder inaugurated MLA Paresh Pal's Kali Pujo. Urban Development Minister Firhad Hakim was also present.
Shakib, who was present on the occasion, also witnessed Aarti with Panch Pradeep. He also wished Diwali to the people of the state. MLA Paresh Pal honored him with a memento.
Incidentally, Shakib also played in the IPL for Kolkata team Knight Riders. Bookie contacted him during the 2016 IPL. He did not tell the news. The cricketer was in exile for 1 year for that crime. A few days ago that deportation went up.
