A three-judge bench restored apex court's November 2016 order banning sale of crackers in NCR and suspended its September 2017 order - which allowed limited sale but banned imports from other states.

Days after noted author Chetan Bhagat targeted Supreme Court for putting a ban on the sale of Diwali firecrackers in Delhi NCR, now yoga guru Baba Ramdev has said that the verdict is against Hindu sentiments.

Keeping their modification plea before a bench headed by Justice Ranjan Gogoi, advocate Deepak Chouhan representing the traders said that the licenses to sell crackers were revived pursuant to Supreme Court's September 12 order permitting sale of firecrackers with restrictions.

Disagreeing with the SC's ban on crackers sale, renowned author Chetan Bhagat had asked on Monday why such bans are only against Hindu festivals. The apex court on Friday said that the ban on sale will continue till further hearing in the case. 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.
