SC allows use of green crackers for 2 hours
NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court on Friday endorsed the NGT order allowing bursting of green crackers for two hours for Diwali, Chhath Puja, Gurupurab, Christmas and New Year celebrations and modified a Telangana high court order imposing complete ban on crackers.
The modification came on a petition by Telangana Fireworks Dealers’ Association which said the HC order created confusion even after the NGT specified categories of cities where green crackers could be burst.
“The cities/towns where air quality is ‘moderate’ or below (better), only green crackers be sold and the timings for use and bursting of crackers be restricted to two hours during festivals...,” the NGT had said
I don't like to burst firecrackers, but this time I am going to buy tonnes of them and going to burst them. This is how Hindus are treated as 3rd class citizens in their own country.
These go nments has problems only during Hindu Festivals.
Stop chopping trees for Christmas. And turkies for Thanksgiving. And goats and camels for Eid. The amount of water consumed by these animals for slaughter cases way more air pollution than crackers on one day.
Soon hindus have to go to courts even to perform puja at their home, coz lighting a diya or arti can melt ice of himalaya and Antarctica, wake up hindus
SC of India has no guts to ban mindless animal slaughter on Eid, which wastes tonnes of water, pollutes soil and water bodies. Above all creates immense filth, which takes more than a week to clear.
It is sad that we have killed the spirit of the Deepavali festival for our Children. Crackers were the greatest of enjoyment in our childhood
Why not restrict other aspects which causes polution as well with same zeal ! Why only target crackers?!
Only Hindus are cause of all bad things country is facing, all others are peace loving.
Most of the pollution is not the smoke that you see but the greenhouse gases emitted throughout the year. Animal farming and non-vegetarian food is responsible for creating most greenhouse gases. Does SC know about it and doing anything?

So Modification comes not because of sentiments of Hindus but Dealers what a nation
thank you SC for setting straight all the idiot states banning fireworks. 2 hours is a good compromise plus green crackers cause less pollution.
Hindus can go one step above. We don't need to burst loud and made in china firecrackers to celebrate. Its festival of celebrating victory of light over darkness, but not of sound over silence. Let other ignorants bray over loud speakers. We are better.
Where is the ban? There are families burting crackers in our society.
Firecrackers cause air pollution, noise pollution, and the loud sounds scare street dogs, cats, cows, and wild animals like birds, leopards, ect.
oh my god what is our supreme court do ?? are they business man??
I have coloured all my crackers including series crackers,heavy bombs, big size anaars with green colour and will show to policemen that these are green as required by rule.
Supreme court is tge supreme joke in India.
Green Crackers still cause 70% pollution, should be banned in cities
Why this restriction only for crackers and not for ALL polluting items like automobiles, loud speakers, ..??
If green crackers don't cause pollution, why don't you let us burst them for more than 2 hrs?
