"In September's order, the apex court had modified its order and allowed limited sale of firecrackers" firecrackers but banned import from other states.

The apex court also said it was "pained and sad" that a communal colour had been given to its order. The court said a complete ban would be a "radical step". "Do not politicise or give a communal angle to the ban", the court said.

Interestingly, the October 9 order only suspended sale and did not impose any restriction on bursting of crackers.

A bench, comprising Justices Ranjan Gogoi, AM Sapre and Navin Sinha, assured counsel for the traders that it would consult the judge concerned, who passed the order, for placing their interim application for urgent hearing.

"Diwali has been celebrated for hundreds of years".

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. That will happen. Sale had already taken place.
