Petition filed in HC seeking ban on sale and publication of Salman Khurshid’s book


The controversy over the book “Sunrise Over Ayodhya” written by Salman Khurshid is not taking its name to stop. Now an advocate has filed a petition in the Delhi High Court to stop the circulation, sale, purchase and publication of this book.

Advocate Vineet Jindal has approached the Delhi High Court seeking a ban on Congress leader Salman Khurid’s book for comparing Hindutva with extremist organizations like IS and Boko Haram. The advocate has filed the petition before the Delhi High Court through Advocate Raj Kishor Choudhary.

The petitioner has also demanded that the book should not be published in any form, i.e. not even in printed or electronic form. The petitioner has approached the Delhi High Court under Article 226 of the Constitution of India. Wherein inter alia a prayer has been made for a suitable writ, order or direction in the nature of mandamus. In which the defendants have been directed to stop the circulation, sale, purchase and publication of the book.


According to the petition filed, publication of “Ayodhya at Sunrise” in any form, i.e. printed or electronic, violates the fundamental right guaranteed under Articles 19 and 21 of the Indian Constitution.

Let us tell you that former Union Minister Salman Khurshid in his recent book “Sunrise Over Ayodhya: Nationhood in Our Times” has been in the news for defaming Hindutva and comparing it to terrorism. Khurshid’s new book on the Ayodhya verdict was released last week. It explores the landmark judgment of the apex court on the Ayodhya dispute.
