High Court restrains Juggernaut Books from publishing book on BabaRamdev‘s life until it deletes sections of the book
On September 29, 2018 the Delhi High Court reversed a decision of an appellate court and reaffirmed a trial court injunction on the publication, distribution and sale of Godman to Tycoon: The Untold Story of BabaRamdev, a book published by Juggernaut Books in July 2017, unless the publisher were to delete certain portions of the book. By an order of April 28, 2018 the Appellate Court of ASCJ (East District) had vacated the injunction passed by the Trial Court which had been in place since it was passed ex-parte on August 4, 2017.
We will comply with the order of the High Court by not publishing, distributing or selling the book at all, as we do not want to do so in a truncated form. As the matter is sub judice, we would prefer not to comment on the merits of the case. However, we stand by our book and will be approaching the Supreme Court.
