"As the Hindu festival of Navratri begins, Jill and I send our best wishes to all those celebrating in the U.S. and around the world. May good once again triumph over evil — and usher in new beginnings and opportunity for all," Biden said.

A similar tweet was posted by Harris, the vice presidential nominee, as she wished the Hindu American community on behalf of herself and her husband Douglas Emhoff.

"@DouglasEmhoff and I wish our Hindu American friends and family, and all those celebrating, a very Happy Navratri! May this holiday serve as an inspiration to all of us to lift up our communities and build a more inclusive and just America (sic)," she said.
