Muslims help Hindus celebrate Diwali.

Ahead of upcoming Diwali celebrations, we take a look back at Muslims who helped make sure a Hindu family was able to celebrate Diwali in this video from CNN.

The Hindu family, a widowed mother and her son, are the only Hindus in their village. All other Hindu families fled the area in the 1990s due to violence. Their Muslim neighbors donated candles and crackers to their rare celebration.

Happy Diwali!
