With the controversial limits on lighting firecrackers, not sure if Diwali – Deepavali would be a happy one. After all firecrackers are one of the biggest things to look forward to… Still we wish all a VERY HAPPY AND PROSPEROUS DIWALI – DEEPAVALI.
But if the Supreme Court really wants to help reduce pollution, then the biggest contributor to pollution world over is the PRODUCTION OF BEEF – “animal livestock farming produces 18% of the world’s greenhouse gases, which as a comparison is more than the pollution from ALL CARS and PLANES TOGETHER. And even among all meat, “BEEF is the absolute worst. Beef production uses 28 times more land and 11 times more water than the production of pork or chicken.” ACs are also big producer of greenhouse gas pollution.
SO LET US BAN BEEF, ACs & MANY OTHER THINGS BEFORE WE BAN DIWALI FIRECRACKERS…
HAPPY DIWALI – DEEPAVALI !

For pollution control reasons, sale on firecrackers for Diwali was banned. Then in September this ban was relaxed, but now the ban went into effect again. Doing so deeply hurts religious sentiments of the Hindu, Sikh and Jain community who look forward to it and celebrate in a big way. Burning firecrackers has religious significance. Being a deeply sensitive topic, it would be hard to even enforce it.
The Supreme Court’s job (as it is world over) is to NOT to make laws but interpret. Here they want to be like the government (even if unelected) to make the laws? The same is the issue with the Rohingya refugee issue where they want to act like the government? There seems to be no self-check or control on what areas they jump into?
INSTEAD OF THIS FIRECRACKER BAN, COULD THEY HAVE ASKED ALL DELHI MOTORISTS TO STOP DRIVING FOR ONE DAY AND INSTEAD TAKE PUBLIC TRANSPORT?
Would they ever to infringe on sensitive matters of other religions?
