Urban Reality: Will citizens support ban on sale of fireworks in Delhi?

The entire country, not just Delhi stands divided today on the Supreme Court's ban on the sale of fireworks in the National Capital Region till November 1. A simple ban to protect Delhiites right to breathe clean air has taken communal overtones. Already back door methods of buying firecrackers are being openly discussed because the ban is only on sale, not on bursting of firecrackers.

CNBC-TV18's Manisha Natarajan caught up with experts to discuss Delhi's pollution crisis and impact of the courts order.

Why Supreme Court is always ready to put ban on Hindu festivals, may these be Dahi Handi, Jallikattu and now Diwali. Nothing is going to happen if children are allowed to burst crackers only for one day. As far as pollution level in Delhi is concerned, it is worst due to various other reasons and crackers have nothing to do with it. Is the Delhi's air is clean at the moment, no it is rather worst and no crackers are being burst.
