Stop the Hawan to clean the Pawan

Stop the Hawan to clean the Pawan

Dear Adityanath ji,

Today morning Shri Ayutchandi Mahayagya Samiti started a yagya at Bhainsali ground in meerut city to curb air pollution. I am aware that the air we breathe is extremely polluted but i do not understand the logic of burning 500 quintals of wood to clean up the air. This will end up causing more damage.

The UP Pollution Control Board, in the meanwhile, has refused to intervene in the matter and said there was no policy under which a probe can be issued in the matter.

The UPPCB had one job! to prevent pollution and they have gloriously failed at that. If we want to clean up Ganga or Yamuna we need to reduce the sources that are contributing to the pollution and not add to it.

Why is this important?

Burning biomass is one of the major contributors of air pollution and 500 quintals of mango wood coupled with ghee, rice and sesame seeds will make the pollution in Meerut worse rather than curbing it. young kids, expecting mothers, senior citizens and people with asthma will be the most affected due to enormous amount of pollution that will be generated over the next 9 days.

There are many ways to curb pollution and burning 500 quintals of wood for days at end is definitely not one of them. I request you to please intervene in the matter immediately and stop this Hawan to clean our Pawan.

Reasons for signing

  • It's a plain and simple logic which every one should understand and not participate in such activities. Only then can these attention attracting activities be curtailed
  • I'm signing this because I'm tired of all these arrogant and uneducated humans not making any process towards cleanliness. We cannot always live in the past. It's time to step up and reduce what we are burning.
  • I believe that we must contribute to remove the giganticproportion of pollution we have been creating,especially in this century with the use of plastic and synthetic materials. We have to remove ignorance about pollution from our people especially religion based beliefs that have no valid explanation
