Double standards of secularism in India: Why is the environment aspect always polluted by Hindu festivals
The cracker ban of diwali this year gave a rise to some next level debate. While the government took this harsh yet necessary decision in order to save the environment the debate was over religious aspect. While some of the people welcomed the decision others raised the question that why only Hindu festivals are banned and demanded a ban over moharram and bakareid.
According to them, the meat of slaughtered animals pollutes the environment more than crackers. Recently Sagarika Ghost tweeted about the visarjan and aspects of pollution. In response to that the lady was slammed with few Muslim festival facts.
This is not the first time journalists are being slammed. Earlier,Taslimen slammed the pseudo secularists in India for their double standard. “Most secular people are pro-Muslims and anti-Hindu. They protest against the acts of Hindu fundamentalists and defend the heinous acts of Muslim fundamentalists,” said the writer. “Politicians appease Muslims for votes in India. Muslims get so much favour that angers many Hindus. It is true that sometimes Muslims get tortured only because they are Muslims. But it happens to other religious community too. In Canning, a Hindu village in West Bengal, was burnt down by Muslim fanatics in 2013. If Muslims were brutally persecuted in India, they would have left India for neighbouring Muslim countries like Hindu minorities have been leaving Bangladesh and Pakistan since Partition,” she added
