Firecrackers with national symbols and images of deities should be banned – Akshay Bhandari
MP, Rajgarh (Dhar). Akshay Bhandari, a youth social worker of Rajgarh (Dhar) city, has demanded a ban on firecrackers with national symbols and images of deities. He also wrote a letter to the Union Home Ministry in which he also sent a photo saying that many such pictures come in firecrackers, many of them are of national symbols, national pride and deities, they should be banned.
Talking to the media, Bhandari said that in the national emblem, the Taj Mahal, Peacock (peacock) and firecrackers with the images of Tiger and other deities should be banned. He had also emailed online so that the matter reached the government, as well as sent this subject through PG portal. In this regard, a reply was received by Jasveer Tiwari, Under Secretary to the Government of India, in which it was said that there is already a provision under IPC section 295-A on this subject.
Bhandari has asked the government through the media why the national symbols, national pride have not been given due respect till date? Has the government limited them only to the national emblem? When the National Pride Prevention Act is applicable to other national symbols, national pride along with the national flag, so that the established national symbols can get proper respect.
