On strange, forced, religious and festive celebrations

If banning is such an obsession in India, why can’t these morons ban festive and religious processions which paralyze public transport completely? After stupid Ganesh Chaturthi Visarjan processions, strange Muharram and Eid celebrations in the middle of the road, today the Sikhs have started this senseless need to showcase the power of their sect on the roads leaving commuters stranded for hours. If you want to take a procession, why can’t you do it in a private place or on a ground or something?  If prayers are for God, why do you need to blast them on speakers? What is the point to pollute water reservoirs by immersing poisonous Ganesh Idols or Durga idols? What is the point in bursting crackers during Diwali publically which leads to noise pollution and air pollution? Again if you want to do it, why can’t you do it in sound-proof areas without polluting the environment or disturbing someone who is not at all interested in these celebrations? The sad part is that the questions are logical but logic does not play a part when it is about religion and so the answers are always going to be illogical.
