Is this phrase "in the light of" equivalent to "regarding"?

 

e.g.

No.

 

"In light of" generally means "considering; with this in mind".

 

For example:

 

In light of recent events, let's postpone the party.

 

"Regarding" generally means "related to"

 

Regarding the party, I think it's better if we postpone it.
