Showkutally Soodhun has, today, July 21, offered his apologies to the PMSD regarding his comments over a poster that was made for Eid-Ul-Fitr. He has called Roshan Seetohul, a member of the PMSD, explaining that he was pressurised by certain religious personalities.
The poster that read “Xavier vous souhaite Eid Mubarak” was initially deemed to be offensive by Showkutally Soodhun; he had vehemently criticised Xavier-Luc Duval for this, even if the poster was made by someone else, and not by the PMSD itself. Showkutally Soodhun has now retracted and apologised for his words.
Xavier-Luc Duval had reacted today morning itself to the statements of his colleague. He has also posted another status to say that he wishes for such an incident not to happen again.
