    SC ban on firecrackers: Hindus are being targeted, says Ramdev

    Talking to a television channel, Ramdev said that the government must appeal against the apex court's order. He said that it has become a common habit to approach the court over each issue and this practice must be stopped.

    The yoga guru also attacked Shashi Tharoor on the issue and said that 'an intelligent man like Tharoor must not talk like this.'

    Earlier, Congress leader Shashi Tharoor said,''Sacrificing goats, cows, animals... it also harms everybody, contributes to the pollution level. A wise person like Shashi Tharoor shouldn't talk like this. It takes 100 kgs and huge amount of water of grain to make 1 kg of meat.''

    The Supreme Court has brought back its November 2016 order suspending all licences permitting the sale of fireworks, wholesale and retail, within the Delhi-NCR.
