Disabling the swipe event in the ion-content of a page

I have a question. I wish to check if its possible to disable the swipe event by default in the ion-content element of the HTML page. I have a ion-slide implementation wrapped with in a div element. If i swipe up/down the page, the position of the contents within the slide element doesn’t change, its still remains in the same place, which makes it ugly. Not sure how to avoid this swipe event in the ion-content. Will create a plunker/codepen and update it soon. Looking forward to hear your comments about this.
