After getting trolled on Twitter for a grammatical mistake, popular fiction writer Chetan Bhagat is again being panned for his latest comments on the Indian Supreme Court's decision to ban fire-crackers and given a rather communal slant to the matter.
In a series of tweets, Bhagat has said, "Why only guts to do this for Hindu festivals? Banning goat sacrifice and Muharram bloodsheds soon too?"
Bhagat claimed the apex court has guts to just ban Hindu festivals. He further asked the court if it planned to also ban animal sacrifice on Muharram -- observed by the Muslim community.
Can I just ask on cracker ban. Why only guts to do this for Hindu festivals? Banning goat sacrifice and Muharram bloodshed soon too?
The alumnus from the reputed Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Delhi and Indian Institute of Management (IIM) Ahmedabad has denounced the ban asking "what's Diwali for children without crackers". Delhi schools have long run a campaign against the indiscriminate burning of fire-crackers on Diwali that pollute the national capital's air for several months.
SC bans fireworks on Diwali? A full ban? What’s Diwali for children without crackers?
