(62 News) – Citizens of Faisalabad say they will celebrate the kite flying festival of Basant despite the ban imposed by the government of Punjab.
The use of dangerous kite flying strings, including metallic strings, poses serious threats to lives owing to which a ban had been imposed. Using dangerous ‘manja’ for flying kites has also resulted in many accidents.
However, ignoring these concerns, residents of Faisalabad say nothing will stop them from celebrating Basant.
Adamant enthusiasts say they will fly kites with or without the ban, saying it is for the law enforcing authorities to see who is breaking the law by using illegal kite flying strings.
