Bombay HC dismisses petition challenging ban on PoP Ganpati idols
The Bombay High Court on Monday dismissed a petition challenging the ban on use of plaster of paris (PoP) for making Ganpati idols.
A division bench of Chief Justice Dipankar Datta and Justice M S Karnik noted that the Supreme Court has already upheld the ban and, hence, this court cannot reopen the matter.
PIL petitioner Ajay Vaishampayan, an activist, had claimed PoP was banned without any scientific tests on its effect on water. He further claimed Shadu clay idols, used as an alternate, were more harmful for the environment.
