Hyderabad: Stop loudspeakers in religious places-a constant nuisance and disturbance!

0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!

Constant, daily sermons, music, singing and other sounds from places of worship are angering and irritating thousands of people. Multiple loudspeakers on these places of worships amplify these sounds to unbearable levels.

Anyone can install loudspeakers and create high-decibel nuisance at any time of the day or night. How is this being allowed in today's "world-class" cities?!

Often these places are located near hospitals, schools, residences, businesses and people are being disturbed at all times of the day and night. We are forced to listen to sermons, non-stop music, or even announcements.

People's private spaces are violated -- for example, if one wishes to meditate or have one's own way of worship, loudspeakers often intrude on these spaces from nearby places of worship. While religion is supposed to bring us peace of mind, the use of loudspeakers causes sleep disturbance, irritation, stress, and intrude into our right to privacy. t is also scaring away birds from the city. Pigeon population is growing and other birds are disappearing.

We are seeing the rise of hatred of those on the loudspeakers creates social tensions and disharmony. With the wide use of phones and social media, people can choose how to be reminded about times to attend worship.

Broadcasting on loudspeakers is hijacking the peaceful atmosphere that is available at dawn/dusk and other times of day for all to enjoy, irrespective of religion. I

This noise pollution is unacceptable and must go. Act now. 

Please put a stop to this growing menace.

Lakhs of people will be grateful to you.
