salman khurshid book ban news: delhi high court dismisses plea ban on salman khurshid book

Highlights

  • Controversy over Congress leader Salman Khurshid’s book Sunrise over Ayodhya
  • Delhi High Court dismisses petition seeking ban on sale of books
  • Court said people are feeling so sensitive so what can we do

New Delhi
The Delhi High Court on Thursday dismissed a petition seeking a stay on the publication, circulation and sale of Congress leader Salman Khurshid’s book Sunrise Over Ayodhya: Nationhood in Our Times. Dismissing the petition, the court was asked what it can do if people are feeling so sensitive. The court was hearing a plea filed by advocate Vineet Jindal, who claimed that the book by the former Union minister hurts the faith of others.

The petition said that Hindutva has been compared with that of extremist groups like ISIS and Boko Haram. Justice Yashwant Verma said that people should not buy or read books. Tell people it’s poorly written, read something better. The counsel for the petitioner claimed that this book can disturb public peace and it is the duty of all people to maintain peace.

The book is badly written, ask them to read something better. What can we do if people are so sensitive? After all, no one has asked them to read it.

Dismissing the petition, the court said if people are feeling so sensitive then what can we do. An additional civil judge here had on November 17 refused to issue any immediate direction on a suit filed by Hindu Sena president Vishnu Gupta seeking a stay on the publication, circulation and sale of Khurshid’s book. The court had said that the author and the publisher have the right to write and publish the book.
