"We are pained to hear that some people are trying to give a communal color to our order. Anyhow, it is not going to be a cracker-free Diwali", the court said.

The Supreme Court banned the sale of firecrackers in Delhi-NCR region until November 1, with a goal to reduce pollution caused by firecrackers on Diwali, but using a loophole, the Gurgaon administration has permitted residents who have already bought firecrackers to burst them on Diwali.

Chetan said that banning crackers on Diwali was like banning Christmas tree on Christmas and goats on Bakr-Eid.

Supreme Court today refused to relax the ban on the sale of firecrackers in Delhi NCR and has directed Delhi Police to implement its order banning the sale of firecrackers. Certain traders of firecrackers with valid licences had knocked the doors of the apex court seeking its direction to modify its earlier order which had put a ban on firecrackers sale. "Sale of firecrackers which has already taken place before the ban order".

Last year, the top court suspended all licences which "permit the sale of fireworks, wholesale and retail within the territory of NCR". "They can burn them from 6 pm to 10 pm on October 19", he said. The court then banned the sale of firecrackers, but relaxed the restrictions on September 12 this year after a plea from fireworks manufacturers.
