The Supreme Court of India brought back its decision of last year banning the firecrackers, suspending licenses to allow the firecracker’s sale within the National Capital of India, Delhi till November, 1. Justice AK Sikri with its bench pronounced the decision stating that, “It would be prudent to ‘try out at least one Diwali without firecrackers’ in light of the severe pollution and smog-like conditions prevalent in the National Capital Region.
The SC’s order is welcomed by the experts and also the celebrities. One among the celebrities, Star Cricketer Virat Kohli was seen supporting the decision of SC in his video. But it seems, his advice didn’t go well down with a nationalist.

In response to Virat Kohli’s ‘Gyan On Not Bursting Firecrackers’, this nationalist hit back at him and write an open letter.

Dear Kohli,

We Indians, respect cricketers a lot. But that doesn’t make you eligible to ‘Pelo Gyaan’ on how we should celebrate our festivals. But since you had done this video (by The Quint), my 0.2 cents Gyaan for you: STOP PLAYING CRICKET. Will you? Because it consumes Million litres of water every year to maintain the bloody pitches you play on and make a fortune from.

Last year, BCCI informed Bombay High Court that 60 lakh litres water is needed for the three pitches at Mumbai, Pune & Nagpur for the IPL matches. BCCI also confirmed that 40 lakh litres water is needed to maintain the pitch of Wankhede Stadium.

40 lakh litres? 60 lakh litres? Does this sound cool to your ears? Is it worthy to play cricket, a game which consumes the precious water when thousands of farmers commit suicide every year because of crop failure, due to want of rain / irrigation. While major population of our country struggles to get reasonable amount of drinking water, you’re a part of Gang who wastes millions of litres of water annually to maintain pitch.

Dear Kohli, please Google ‘water shortage in Delhi’ and you will get the reality of your very own birth place. You will know how people of East & West Delhi colonies struggles and fight with their neighbours whenever tankers arrive to supply water.So, please STOP being a part of community who wastes Million litres of water every year.

I will STOP bursting crackers the day you will Stop playing cricket.because it wastes

And yes, till then, I will burst crackers. This Diwali I will burst an Extra cracker in your name.
