Mumbai Police called out for patronising Hindus while maintaining silence on Mosques using loudspeakers

Mumbai Police on Ganesh Chaturthi took to Twitter to voice its concerns about noise pollution and said, “Every time you increase the volume, someone’s prayer for a peaceful celebration is let down

Mumbai police, that is today asking Hindus to keep the noise level down during Ganesh Chaturthi, had earlier avoided taking any action against unauthorised loudspeakers in mosques fearing law and order problems, despite an order from the Bombay High Court.

This move, that was viewed by many as a biased stand by the Mumbai police, took to Twitter to react to Mumbai police’s tweet. Many responded to the Mumbai police by saying that their stand was perhaps hypocritical since they have in the past not imposed the same standards on other communities despite a court order.

Mumbai Police’s Twitter handle has run into trouble with Netizens earlier too. Recently, Mumbai Police tweeted to Bollywood actor Uday Chopra that consumption, possession and transportation of marijuana are prohibited in India and could lead to harsh punishment if convicted for the same when the latter advocated for the legalisation of the drug.

Soon, Mumbai Police was called out by Netizens for attempting to police through social media. Many also pointed out that Uday Chopra was merely expressing his views and that the police should ensure law and order in the city first.

While Mumbai Police has to be commended for maintaining law and order during massive festival processions running brilliant social media campaigns, raising awareness and winning hearts by the quick response and making the best use of the platform, they sometimes do lose the plot.
