I'm not clear the real meaning of "There is no reason why something should not be done"

Does it mean that

"it is not allowed to get something done in any circumstance."

or

Does it suggest

"Although something has not been done, actually we are allowed to get it done."

"There is no reason why something should not be done" means that someone does not have a good reason, or any reason, to not do something.

In simpler terms, it means you can do it since there is no reason/excuse, or what @KateBunting has suggested, "it would be perfectly acceptable to do it".

  • @KateBunting The word "Can" indeed conveys a better and meaningful explanation I could easily understand. Commented Apr 28, 2022 at 9:35
