New Delhi: Actor-environmentalist Juhi Chawla approached the Delhi Court against the implementation of 5G wireless networks in the country, raising issues related to the impact of radiations on humans, animals, flora, and fauna.
The petition, file through advocate Deepak Khosla has claimed that 5G will lead to Radiofrequency (RF) radiation exposure to all the living beings almost 100 times more than the current level and can lead to serious, irreversible effects on humans and permanent damage to Earth’s ecosystem.
Justice C Hari Shankar, who was supposed to conduct the hearing, transferred the suit to another bench for hearing on June 2. Juhi Chawla said that while she is not against the implementation of technological advancements but if the telecommunications industry’s plans for 5G come to fruition, no living being on Earth will be able to avoid exposure, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, to levels of RF radiation that are 100 times greater than what exists today in the present times.
The suit has cited clinical and experimental evidence of damage to DNA, cells, and organ systems in plants and animals to state the major diseases such as cancer, heart diseases, and diabetes.
The present suit is being instituted to sought a direction to the authorities to certify to the public at large, that 5G technology is safe to humankind, animals, and every type of living organism, flora, and fauna.
