Mughul ruler Aurangzeb banned fireworks in 1667!!! 350 years later, this has been again repeated in India

A bunch of lunatics and fanatics who had invaded India in the name of religion started destroying the culture and tradition of India, step by step. At first, they started forced conversion of Hindus and when this didn’t work out, these Mughuls started to butcher Hindus.

Between all these atrocities, the Mughul ruler Aurangzeb had once banned the fire crackers in the year 1667. Still, we call these Mughals as the emperors who fostered communal harmony.

What had Aurangzeb ordered regarding Deepwali?

“The Emperor ordered Jumdat-ul-Mulk to write to the Mutsaddis of all the subahs (provinces) of the empire that display of fire-works (atishbazi) is being forbidden. Also, Faulad Khan was ordered to arrange for announcement in the city by the beat of a drum that no one is to indulge in atishbazi”. This was the communal order of the Mughal emperor, Aurangzeb.

Aurangzeb had also written to the Subahdar of Gujarat that “In the city and parganas of Ahmedabad (or Gujarat) the Hindus, following their superstitious customs, light lamps in the night on Diwali… It is ordered that in bazaars there should be no illumination on Diwali”.

This exposes the amount of hate that was filled in the communal heads of the Mughals who are worshipped in Indian textbooks at present.

After 350 years, fire crackers on Deepawali banned once again!!!

What Aurangzeb did, has been repeated once again but this time it was ordered by the highest court of justice in India. The ban is effective immediately and lasts until November 1st. The ban will be enforced in New Delhi and nearby towns. Is the court expecting Hindus to burst crackers after Deepawali?

The court was even ready to hear the petition that urged to stop the deportation of Rohingyas who were a security threat to India. But the same court failed to understand and respect the feelings of nearly 100 crore Hindus.

Irony is that on the same day, October 9th 2017, the Gujarat High Court commuted the death sentence of 11 convicts in Godhra train burning case. So the murderers who burnt 59 Hindu pilgrims were able to save their lives but Hindus were denied the rights to celebrate the return of Lord Ram to Ayodhya by bursting fire crackers.

Jallikattu, one of the ancient traditions was banned yet the Hindus didn’t resort to violence. ‘Dahi Handi’ celebration was restricted, yet Hindus didn’t disrespect the court. Durga idol immersion was restricted by West Bengal government, yet Hindus didn’t lose their hope on Indian legal system. In Karnataka, ‘Bull race’ (Kambala), one of the sporting event organised by farmers was banned.

Jallikattu and Kamala (Bull race) where the animals are looked with upmost care is considered as cruelty against animals but slaughter of animals during religious festivals is legal in India. Yet, India is secular.

It is a tragedy that the court has decided to check whether environmental pollution will be reduced or not, by banning the joy of Hindu festival. Still, Hindus haven’t lost faith in Indian judiciary.

Let’s hope that Deepawali will be celebrated as royally as ever!!!
