Hindutvavadis demand ban on printing pictures of Deities on crackers

Haliyal, Karnataka : Crackers are burst on very large scale during Diwali festival. Crackers with pictures of Deities and great national leaders are also burst which result in tearing off their pictures to pieces on bursting; leading to hurting religious sentiments of Hindus. It is a crime under Section 295 (A) of Indian Penal Code and under clause 9 (2) (B) of Trademark Act 1999 of the Central Government; as printing of religious symbols and pictures is a crime under this Act; therefore crackers with Deities’ pictures should be banned. Representation with the above demand was submitted to Tehsildar of Haliyal Shri. Vidyadhar Galgali and Dy. Police Inspector E. C. Sampatkumar on behalf of Hindu Janajagruti Samiti on 4th November.
