    The Telangana unit of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) recently alleged that the state police conducted biased drunk driving checks during Hindu festivals while none were conducted during Ramzan. The party claimed that this was a clear case of religious discrimination and demanded that the police conduct checks during all festivals, irrespective of the religion they belong to.

    Drunk driving is a serious offence that puts not only the driver but also other road users at risk. It is a leading cause of road accidents and fatalities in India. To curb this menace, the police conduct regular checks to catch drunk drivers and penalize them. These checks are usually conducted during festivals when people tend to drink more than usual.

    However, the BJP alleged that the Telangana police were conducting these checks selectively during Hindu festivals like Ganesh Chaturthi and not during Ramzan. The party claimed that this was a clear case of religious discrimination and demanded that the police conduct checks during all festivals, irrespective of the religion they belong to.

    The Telangana police, on the other hand, denied the allegations and said that they conduct drunk driving checks throughout the year, including during Ramzan. They also pointed out that the number of drunk driving cases during Ramzan was relatively low compared to other festivals.

    While it is important to ensure that drunk driving checks are conducted without any bias or discrimination, it is also important to understand the reasons behind the alleged bias. One reason could be that people tend to drink more during Hindu festivals like Ganesh Chaturthi, which is a 10-day festival celebrated with great fervour in Telangana. The police may have increased their checks during this festival to ensure that people do not drink and drive.

    Another reason could be that the police may have received more complaints about drunk driving during Hindu festivals than during Ramzan. In such cases, it is only natural for the police to increase their checks during these festivals to ensure public safety.

    However, regardless of the reasons behind the alleged bias, it is important for the police to conduct drunk driving checks during all festivals, irrespective of the religion they belong to. This will ensure that there is no room for religious discrimination and that public safety is given top priority.

    In conclusion, the Telangana BJP’s allegations of biased drunk driving checks during Hindu festivals while none were conducted during Ramzan are serious and need to be investigated thoroughly. While it is important to ensure that drunk driving checks are conducted without any bias or discrimination, it is also important to understand the reasons behind the alleged bias and take corrective measures accordingly. The police must conduct checks during all festivals, irrespective of the religion they belong to, to ensure public safety.
