Firstly, Wise Indian Tongue and it’s entire team is against the pollution caused in any forms. We should consider what kind of environment we want to give our next generations. But at the same time we are against the hypocrisy of the judgements and the way India has been dealing with Hindu Festivals.
Supreme Court on Monday banned the sale of fireworks ahead of the annual Diwali festival on October 19 in Delhi and in the National Capital Region (NCR). The SC simultaneously suspended all licenses issued by the Delhi Police to shopkeepers that allowed them to sell fireworks. If at a certain moment of time let us agree Crackers are banned, then why ban them only during Diwali and why not throughout the year.
Crackers are not only used during Diwali, but during Marriages, New Year, Christmas, Elections and Public events. Why just ban it during Diwali. Doesn’t it show the hypocrisy and a force towards trying to Dominate Hindu Festival and Culture.
Impact to environment by using Christmas Tree:
The New York Times reported in 2010 that an independent study from Ellipsos found that fake trees — which can be re-used year after year — usually contain a dubious chemical called polyvinyl chloride, or PVC, “which produces carcinogens during manufacturing and disposal.”
Carbon emissions associated with real trees were discovered to be about a third of those created by artificial trees over what’s said to be their “typical six-year lifespan.” When fake, plastic trees have outlived their usefulness, they usually end up in landfills and aren’t biodegradable. Researchers claim you need to eke out over a decade of use to see returns.
But real trees aren’t without their drawbacks. If you use an artificial tree for 10 years, you need 10 trees, and that is 70 years worth of growing trees, You have 70 years of water and pesticide consumption. Those have environmental costs, too. So why not Ban Christmas Trees both Artificial and Non Artificial trees during Christmas.
Animal Sacrifice during Bakraid:
As rightly mentioned By Tarek Fateh, On one day throughout the world, lakhs and lakhs of animals are slaughtered in the name of sacrifice. Those who sacrifice only display their wealth and the worst thing about it is that, the sacrifices take place in the presence of children–the same goat, which they have been feeding as a pet. If you must sacrifice, then sacrifice what is precious to you, so I said, smash your iPhone.
Nobody is sacrificing from the heart. It has turned into a ritual, it is also unhygienic.
Today Muslims will slaughter millions of goats as our 'sacrifice' to please Allah. Y don't we smash our iPhone instead as a real 'sacrifice'

So doesn’t SC see any problems with the non- Hindu Festivals or Secularism can be achieved by only Targeting Hindusim??
