Expelled BJP leader and former Union Minister Jaswant Singh has approached the Supreme Court challenging the ban on his book titled "Jinnah: India-Partition- Independence" imposed by the Gujarat government.
In his book, Jaswant Singh has blamed Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru and Sardar Patel for the partition of the country in 1947 and has praised founder of Pakistan Mohammed Ali Jinnah.
