In no part of the world today, any cruel and gruesome victory is celebrated in the manner it is being done in India. Some of the examples are 

<!--[if !supportLists]-->·         <!--[endif]-->Holi 

<!--[if !supportLists]-->·         <!--[endif]-->Durga Puja

<!--[if !supportLists]-->·         <!--[endif]-->Dashahra      

Holi is celebrated in the name of Holika who was cruelly burnt down for allegedly trying to kill her own nephew. This is debatable as no aunt would try to kill her own nephew. 

Durga puja is the most controversial racial festival where a fair skinned beautiful goddess Durga is depicted brutally killing a dark skinned native named Mahishasur. accirding to popular folklore, Mahishasur was a brave and self-respecting leader of dravidians, who wad tricked into marriage by Aryans after they failed to defeat him. They hired a sex worker called Durga, who enticed mahishasur into marriage and killed him after nine nights of honeymooning during sleep. Every year thousands of pooja pandals are erected with idols of goddess Durga astride a lion, killing Mahishasur in the most gory and cruel manner.

Effigies of Ravan, along with his son and brother are burnt every year, to celebrate victory of Rama.

At the time of petitioning some 35 people died due to stampede while watching Ravan dahan. I request all to sign this petition and help in putting an end to this gory manner of celebrating festivals.
