JASWANT SINGH MOVES SUPREME COURT AGAINST BANNING OF HIS BOOK

Search News

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.

Mr Singh, who is considered to be very close to former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee, was expelled from the party without a show-cause notice.

Mr Singh in his petition described the ban as arbitrary and unconstitutional and that the Gujarat government has violated the fundamental right of the author to freedom of speech and expression.

A PIL is already pending in Gujarat High Court against the ban.

The petition is likely to come up for hearing in the coming few days.
