Ban firecrackers bearing pictures of Deities on them and Chinese firecrackers! – Hindu Janajagruti Samiti

Memorandum served by Hindu Janajagruti Samiti in the Sawantwadi District

Why do we need to place this demand to the Administration every year? Chinese firecrackers are extremely pollutant and have to be banned. Why does the Administration not realize this ? – Editor, HJS

Sindhudurg : During the festival of Deepawali highly pollutant Chinese firecrackers are sold illegally, which has to be stopped. Pictures of Deities and patriots are printed on the covering of the firecrackers. This results in denigration of Deities and dishonour of patriots, hurting of religious sentiments of the millions of Hindus and also a blow to the national image. Hence the Government should stop production and sale of such firecrackers. This demand was placed by Hindu Janajagruti Samiti through a memorandum served on the District Police, Government Officers and elected representatives.
