Sonu Nigam has raised a valid question
Singer Sonu Nigam has raised a valid question whether use of loudspeakers in any religious place or place of worship is disturbing to many citizens or not. Further he said that “I stand by my statement that loudspeakers should not be allowed in mosques & temples” The use of loudspeakers at odd hours for religious rituals, election rallies, marriage processions on road, stray dogs barking, honking of car horns etc., are examples of noise pollution, which is not less harmful than air pollution, and keeps bothering many citizens. Loudspeakers must be banned throughout India during odd hours at least in between 6 pm to 10 am for all purposes including religion purposes – as religion is a very persol matter, certainly not for the public from any angle – after all, no religion allows inconvenience to any person of any other religion. Marriage processions along roads cause much inconvenience to the public as it leads to traffic jams etc. This rule must have legal sanctity to bring about public welfare – this period is to remain calm and take rest, which is a must for good health too.
