people fr5om using the name and images of Hindu God and Goddesses on fire crackers.
“Diwali is one of the greatest festivals of our country. It has come to our notice that a few businessmen
of the district are engaged in selling crackers and allied items by using the names and images of Hindu
God and Goddesses, thereby insulting and wounding the religious sentiments of Hindus, which is not at
all tolerable. We request the district administration to take steps and stop the illegal activities,” Hazarika
