Malpractices that mar the festivals of Holi and Rangpanchami should be curbed. The Hindu Janajagruti Samiti (HJS) has demanded this, as well as protection to women, among other demands, through a memorandum submitted to the DC’s Office, The Commissioner’s office, as well as Police Inspector Mohan Dale of the Morshi Police Station.

Morshi police inspector Mohan Dale said, “You are doing a lot of good work for social awareness. Raise awareness in the society about malpractices during Holi and Rangpachami. ”

The memorandum states,

1. Holi is a celebration of eradicating evil tendencies and evil thoughts; However, at present, this festival has been marred by many misdeeds. Alcohol abuse, obscene gestures towards women, use of toxic colors on the day of Rangpanchami etc. have become rampant. This has made it difficult for women, senior citizens and children to get out of the house.

2. Police should maintain patrols to ensure the sanctity of these festivals, make women feel safe and prevent the sale of chemical dyes. For the safety of women, those who commit such acts during this period should be immediately arrested and action should be taken against them. Along with this, instructive pamphlets should be distributed, organizations should also be roped in to create awareness.

3. Acts that are harmful to the environment like lighting a garbage bonfire should not be allowed. and Holi should be celebrated by understanding the shaastras. Healthy trees should not be allowed to be chopped down to light the Holi bonfire.
