Let us remember and reach out to our suffering countrymen, women, elders, widows, widowers and children, and see in them the redemption message of Easter, and the dignified compassion of Christ.

In his Easter message, Deputy Prime Minister and the Leader of the National Federation Party, Professor Biman Prasad says Easter is yet again a timely reminder to all of us about the sacrifice and resurrection of Jesus Christ for the good of humanity.

He says the significance of Easter tells us that Christ triumphed over death and evil, as well as unjust collusion that sent him to be crucified.

Professor Prasad says it is a reminder of hope, light and victory both at the cross, and when the stone was rolled away.

He says Christ's story is eternal and we can reflect on Him, where despite darkness and death, we are stronger when we are led by compassion and love.

The Deputy Prime Minister says the crucifixion and resurrection of Christ also serves as a constant reminder to all us of, of our fundamental duty to thwart off the forces with devious designs and re-establish the rule of righteousness.

He is urging the people to reflect on the spiritual significance of this annual event as we search for answers to our pressing national and issues.

Professor Prasad says all of us must at all times demonstrate our unflinching commitment to the cause of humanity and harness our energy and resources to reclaim, rebuild, restore and reunite as nation.
