Sacred Yamuna river polluted by toxic foam in India

Published on Nov 9, 2019
The Yamuna River near Delhi is covered by a white foam created by critical air pollution levels as large parts of northern India are experiencing a pollution crisis.

“Many drink this water without knowing the consequences. Due to this pollution, both humans and animals are being affected. We are scared,” said one local.

As the situation has worsened, impacting water bodies in the area, Hindu devotees were forced to bathe in the toxic foam to offer prayers and gratitude to the sun god on the occasion of Chhath Puja.
