The real reason Supreme Court banned crackers do not have anything to do with pollution!

Since the moment the Supreme Court of India has imposed a ban on the sale of crackers in New Delhi, the entire country seems to have been divided into two groups. Whereas one group has welcomed the decision keeping in mind the pollution it spreads, another group has criticized this decision, deeming it as an anti-Hindu proposition.

However, after a detailed investigation by a media house, it was found that curbing pollution is not the exact reason behind this Supreme Court decision. So, what was it?

Here’s a tweet that would help you to understand the truth in our statement:

The photograph attached with the tweet is an extract from the September 12 judgement of the court, with the highlighted portions affirming the fact that the panel doesn’t “have any subsequent proof that tells us that Diwali Crackers is the main source of air pollution. So there is no need to take an extreme step of banning the Fire Crackers on Diwali.”

If that is the case, then why is firing crackers banned in Delhi? The reason is as shocking as it is hilarious:

Yes, you hear it right. This is just a trial by the Supreme Court to know how much pollution is being contributed by firing crackers. We wonder if the apex court will ever bring the entire city to a standstill by banning all vehicles from the streets just to see the amount of pollution being contributed by the vehicles.

Here’s the second and more hilarious reason showcased by the apex court for the ban:

We wonder how the judges came to know about a “consensus” without holding any sort of referendum? And if they have held a referendum, why is its results being hidden from the public? After all, the public has a right to know why they are not being allowed to celebrate their most important festival of the year in a way they have been celebrating since ages?

Furthermore, according to a data furnished by IIT Kanpur earlier, Diwali do not cater to the inherent pollution of the city, something that the city copes on a daily basis. So, what’s the point in banning the sale of firecrackers during Diwali? Here’s a glimpse of what the data furnished by IIT Kanpur shows:

So, as it turns out, IIT Kanpur neither put Diwali crackers in the list of pollutants ruining the city nor did they suggest a ban on the same. After all, what will be the use of such a ban?

Keeping all these in mind, we just want to ask a simple question to the honorable court? If the prime data does not feature crackers as one of the prime pollutants, how are they banning it while turning a blind eye on those which are actually ruining the city?

If this is not an anti-Hindi proposition by the court, we fail to understand what anti-Hindu actually is!
