Asking what it could do if people were "feeling so sensitive", the DelhiDelhiDelhi High Court Thursday dismissed a petition to stop the publication, circulation and sale of Congress leader Salman Khurshid's book Sunrise Over Ayodhya: Nationhood In Our Times".
The court was hearing a plea by lawyer Vineet Jindal who claimed the book by the former Union minister impinges upon the faith of others as it compares Hindutva to radical groups like ISIS and Boko Haram. Ask people not to buy the book or read it. Tell people it is badly authored, read something better, said Justice Yashwant Varma.
The peitioner's counsel claimed the book could result in a breach of public peace and it was the duty of all persons to maintain peace. What can we do if people are feeling so sensitive, the judge remarked as he proceeded to dismiss the petition.
