In November past year, the court had stopped the sale of fireworks within the National Capital Region, which includes Delhi and nearby areas, following the alarming rise in pollution levels after Diwali.

"We are pained at communal remarks on the verdict".

The bench also said that people would burst firecrackers which they have purchased before the October 9 order. To ensure strict implementation of its orders, SC has directed Delhi Police to implement its directive. "It is sad", the top court said while hearing the petition of traders to modify the order today.

A group of traders on Wednesday moved the Supreme Court seeking modification of the 9 October order by which the sale of firecrackers was banned in Delhi-NCR region till 1 November.

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

The ban on sale and stocking of firecrackers will be in effect until November 1, 2017.

The apex court, while banning the sale of firecrackers till October 31, had said its September 12 order temporarily lifting the stay and permitting sale of firecrackers, would be made effective only from November one.

After Chetan Bhagat, Shashi Tharoor and fashion designer Masaba Mantena got trolled for supporting the firecracker ban on social media, Juhi Chawla's tweet has cracked up Twitterati on another level.

Last month, the court provisionally suspended the interdict and allowed the sale of fire crackers, saying that a complete ban would be considered as an "extreme step", and a "graded advancement" was required to deal with pollution.

He also suggested that the court could restrict the time for bursting firecrackers or its sale.
