Here's Suresh Prabhu's wish on the occasion of Good Friday:

According to The Bible, Jesus was crucified on a cross along with two criminals on either side. He was betrayed into the hands of the Roman soldiers by one of his 12 disciples Judas Iscariot for merely 30 silver coins. Jesus was accused of blasphemy as he called himself the 'Son of God'. He was taken to four different courts a day before his death and as nothing was being told in his favour during the interrogation, he was sentenced to death. Hence, the crucifixion of Jesus is hence a day of mourning for Christians.
