"Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh feels that bad effects of bursting firecrackers should be pointed out; but all firecrackers don't spread pollution. Diwali is a festival of happiness. Only the fireworks that harm the environment and spread pollution should be banned," RSS Sarkaryavah Suresh Bhaiyyaji Joshi told the media at the end of a three-day RSS meeting here.

There should be a balanced view on the issue, he added.

"We have been celebrating this festival of happiness for many years. We even light earthern lamps - tomorrow someone may have a problem with this as well. So, we need to ponder over this issue," the RSS leader added.

The top court had by its 11 November, 2016 order banned the sale and stocking of firecrackers, lifted the ban was lifted on 12 September this year, but, on a plea for the recall of the 12 September lifting order, the top court restored the ban till October 31, saying the 12 September order would come into operation from 1 November.

The top court by its 9 October order had said that the impact of the ban on the sale of firecrackers on the air pollution in Delhi on Diwali should be tested at least once.
