Hindus can’t enjoy however simple it is
The more Kalipuja and Diwali draws near (every year), police and administration get active to call the saga of fireworks (of low intensity certainly and used by Hindus to celebrate the two festivals) in
a halt. There is not exception in this year too; police campaigns have already
begun and it seems that the police will not take a breather (rest) till it succeeds to end this form of joyous
celebration done by Hindus exclusively.
As fresh reports are coming in, police drives are in full swing (at the moment) in
Bengal and undoubtedly, in Kolkata and its
Bidhannagar Commissionarate can be taken as a glaring example, in this regard. Administration, here, is all set to impose a series of guidelines to maintain discipline (?) in the coming festive days. With this end in view, police is leaving no stone unturned to put an end to sale of fireworks (without license) in a few areas (under its purview) including Saltlake, Laketown and Baguihati. Prohibition has already been promulgated and what is more, all police stations (in the region) have been warned of the import of these fireworks. Police, as a result, has already started extensive searches; special team has also been deployed.
This is not all; Hindus inhabiting cooperative societies and large buildings have also been cautioned of dire consequences if any violation occurs. To create awareness among Hindus against using fireworks, police is holding a series of meetings and also distributing leaflets.
But the same police, despite having orders of both Supreme Court of India and Calcutta High Court proclaiming banning of cow slaughter on Bakr Eid, preferred to remain silent on October 27, 2012 (Bakr Eid) when slaughtering of cows by Muslims was unabated.
