On July 20, the top court had ordered the release of Zubair on interim bail in all the FIRs lodged in Uttar Pradesh against him for alleged hate speech.
The businessman took note of a 2018 tweet of Zubair and tweeted, tagging Delhi Police and urging it to take action because his "religious sentiments" were hurt.
Counsel for Delhi Police sought four weeks from Justice Purushaindra Kumar Kaurav to file a reply.
Gag orders have a "chilling effect" on the freedom of speech, it said while refusing to accept the submission of the counsel representing UP that Zubair be barred from tweeting when he is on bail.
Family and friends celebrating his home-coming seemed to iron out the stress of the last four weeks that they had endured collectively.
The Supreme Court, earlier in the day, ordered the release of Zubair on interim bail, saying "exercise of the power of arrest must be pursued sparingly".
"There is no justification to keep the petitioner in continued detention especially since the gravamen of allegations in UP FIRs is similar to that in Delhi police FIR," the Court said.

Zubair's advocate argued that some of these are old FIRs of last year and recoveries have already been made from his residence at Bengaluru and his electronic devices have been seized.
The court took note of the submissions of Zubair's lawyer Vrinda Grover that the petitioner, a fact checker and journalist, has been facing a slew of FIRs and his plea needed an urgent hearing.
On Friday, a Delhi court had granted him bail in a case related to an allegedly objectionable tweet, observing that "the voice of dissent is necessary for a healthy democracy".

The bail was granted on a personal bond and surety of Rs 50,000. Zubair will not be able to leave India without the permission of the court, the verdict said.
The move by the journalist came even as a court in Hathras in UP remanded Zubair to 14-day judicial custody.
A Delhi court will hear today a bail plea moved by Zubair in a case related to an "objectionable tweet" he had posted in 2018 against a Hindu deity.
The SIT will be headed by Inspector General (Prisons) Preetinder Singh while IG Amit Verma will be its member, Additional Director General (Law & Order) Prashant Kumar said.
Additional Solicitor General SV Raju said that since Zubair has already been granted bail in the matter, there should not be any objection from his side to grant time to file the affidavit.
Additional Sessions Judge Devender Kumar Jangala adjourned the hearing for Thursday after the prosecution sought time for a detailed argument in the matter.

Additional Sessions Judge Devender Kumar Jangala will hear Zubair's application filed on Monday against the order of a magisterial court which on July 2 dismissed his bail plea.
The Lakhimpur Kheri police had served a warrant on Zubair to appear in the court in connection with an FIR lodged against him for promoting enmity in 2021.
Mathur said foreign transactions were not allowed without FCRA approval. The payment gateway had shared with investigating authorities "only specific data" within the scope of the investigation.
Additional Solicitor General SV Raju said the act of Zubair publicly calling seers as "hate mongers" has potential to outrage religious feelings of a particular community and incite violence.
