Diwali is around the corner and many people, especially celebrities, are coming up with the best wishes on social media. However at one fell swoop, some of them ask people not to burn firecrackers and celebrate Diwali with lots of Diyas and lights instead.
One of them is Soni Razdan, mother of Bollywood actress Alia Bhatt! She took to the micro-blogging site Twitter and asked people to celebrate a cracker-free Diwali as she is of the opinion that crackers pollute the environment. At the same time, she says that the noise created by the burning of firecrackers disturbs pets and animals we love a lot.
This is what Soni Razdan said in a video message:
“On behalf of the Asif Bhamla foundation, I would like to wish you all a very very happy and safe Diwali. Please don’t burn firecrackers and help in polluting the environment, instead help to unpollute the environment by not burning firecrackers. And also firecrackers are very disturbing to pets and the animals that we all love so let’s just have a really cool Diwali with lots of Diyas, lots of lights, lots of love and laughter but no firecrackers. Happy Diwali.”

Twitterati didn’t like this gyaan from Soni and Alia and called them hypocrites. Users asked as to why they don’t spread the message of blood-free Eid or why they don’t give this gyaan for the rest of the year when crackers are burnt in marriages, New Year, Christmas and so on.
This is how Soni and Alia got mercilessly trolled:
Ur mom is as uneducated n idiot as u r … Turn off ur AC .. stop using car n promote public transport … These pollute environment 24×7 365 days in a year … Understood perverts

Why should muslims preach on how Hindus should celebrate Deepawali. Why don't u preach muslims not to kill bakra on eid.

Which animals you are talking about? Only the animals you pet or also those you kill for your feasts??

Why u all hypocrites only care for dogs during Diwali ? Other animals are not living beings. Stop eating non-veg and spare other animals too

I wonder when these hypocrites come out and say meatless eid.. killing poor and innocent animals is a bigger sin then polluting enviornment… pollution se yaad aya they stay in AC 24*7 and use SUVs to travel… #HypocriteBollywood
