Karnataka: IPS official savaged after she says consuming fireworks not a ‘Hindu custom’


Karnataka IPS official D Roopa was savaged via online media after she upheld the prohibition on fireworks. In a Facebook post on November 14, she had composed that blasting sparklers on Diwali is anything but a Hindu convention and that there is no notice of saltines in legends and Puranas.

Refering to the effect of blasting saltines on individuals’ wellbeing, and air contamination levels just as its impact on Bengaluru’s green cover, she composed on Facebook, “For the individuals who cry casualty that this is never really, well, wafers were not there during right on time and later Vedic age; there is no notice of wafers in our sagas and Puranas. Saltines came into this nation with Europeans. It is no center convention or uniquely identified with Hinduism.”

Following this, few Twitter clients asked her whether she would inquire about the traditions of different religions also.

The Twitter handle ‘Genuine Indology’ asserted that wafers have been referenced in old sacred writings of India. Roopa discredited the case and approached True Indology for proof to help what it said. Hours after the fact, the ‘Genuine Indology’ handle was suspended.

A few Twitter clients including entertainer Kangana Ranaut fought the suspension of the ‘Genuine Indology’ handle, scrutinizing the web-based media stage’s unexpected move. Ranaut asserted that official Roopa “turned out to be vindictive to the point that on the off chance that she was unable to win the contentions with realities she basically got @TIinExile killed”. Following this, #BringBackTrueIndology began moving on Twitter.

A few states had forced fractional and complete boycotts of fireworks this Diwali considering the Covid-19 circumstance. Other than Delhi, which has been wrestling with high contamination levels for as far back as a couple of years, numerous different states including Karnataka, West Bengal, Sikkim, Odisha, have put a bar on the utilization of saltines to preclude any expected danger of spreading of infection or making troubles for the individuals who have just been fighting the illness.
