Adding to the growing social media clamour over the Supreme Court ban on sale of firecrackers in Delhi and NCR this Diwali, Tripura Governor Tathagata Roy has sparked a fresh controversy with a veiled attack on the court ruling. He has now kicked up a storm on the social media by stating soon there would be a ban on Hindu cremations.

"Kabhi dahi handi, aaj patakha, kal ho sakta hai pradushan ka havala lekar mombatti aur award-waapsi gang Hinduon ki chita jalaney par bhi yachika dal dey (One day it is dahi handi, today it is firecrackers; tomorrow the issue of pollution may well lead to a plea by the candle (holding) and award-waapsi gang on cremating Hindus)", he tweeted.

When asked if he was not concerned about the poor air quality in Delhi, he said he was aware of the situation, but argued that "Diwali happens only once a year". A couple of months ago, he had dug out a 1946 diary entry made by Syama Prasad Mookerjee, who later founded the Bharatiya Jana Sangh. According to a TV channel, this is not the first time Roy has courted controversy. It stated that "the Hindu-Muslim problem won't be solved without a Civil War".
