Answer by Tesjasvita Apte: I see a lot of people challenging the OP’s premise while explaining the need for loudspeakers. Now guys, I care a hang about political correctness, it is NOISE POLLUTION. The reason Mosque is questioned is because a mosque blares loudspeaker 5 times every day. Same is not the case with temples. Nevertheless, Hindus too indulge in group noise pollution few times every year like the Ganesh Festival etc. and that too deserves a ban.
Masjids as well as temples or in fact, anybody (even private bodies) can make any amount of Noise in India. There is absolutely no legal limit. The only restriction in the state of Maharashtra is a deadline of 10 pm. After 10 pm, they have to stop no matter what. Other states may or may not have such a restriction.The reason why Mosques (or temples or anybody) are allowed such noise pollution is because we have a spineless government which in the name of religious freedom doesn’t even care about our health.
And most people too support such decisions because for them anything even remotely religious has divine sanction.This my friends is the basic problem. We have such a spineless government since independence that we do not even have a Uniform Civil Code in spite of having it in our Directive Principles of State Policy and SC saying so many times.
