Diwali is one of Indian festivals when people enjoy festival of lights,sweets and firecrackers.But this year Delhi Ncr is shocked when Supreme Court has Banned the sale of Firecrackers in Delhi-NCR because Firecracker's impact on air quality and pollution. After ban,shopkeepers and dealers of firecrackers are in tension ,because this is the only day which provides them living for the year;while Court cannot ban tobacco burning ,daily noise pollution or even all types of pollution on 31st December night etc. And What do you think about it ?

There should be some restriction as pollution is a real issue. I have seen some going overboard with infants and even animals in great distress - siva

This order is only one sided, because it will only effect Diwali celebration. After 31 October they can be used again, and cleverly in 25 Dec and 31st Dec, cleverly to change festival. Either Ban should be imposed properly, or there should be no ban.

@yugocean Agreed, but it is a step in the right direction. Democracy should not lead to free for all - siva

It is like over banning a tradition of a Hindu festivals. opening court for terrorists, but do not allowing traders and festival celebrating to speak on their behalf.

On the contrary. I would use this as an excuse not to let people spend on Mecca visits, December 31st, or build Ram's statues. Other countries make people donate for such things, and do not use tax payer's monies which are for building dams, generating power, preventing floods, and droughts, repairing and increasing railway networks, roadways, medical facilities, etc.

@sarik1 Festival is to celebrate, court think about one day and one time pollution, but no importance.

@vandana7 One side judgement it is, but this will be forgotten after Diwali and court will allow on 31 Dec in name of poor traders.

Though there a good reason for the ban, but it as well bring good tidying amongst the people and I this will also cause many to loss money. Were they notified before the ban?

@genpius No, court did not allowed traders and others to speak their side. Only passed order. It was just a surprise order passed 2 weeks before festival.
