Jaswant Singh
New Delhi, Aug 28: Expelled BJP leader Jaswant Singh on Friday, Aug 28, moved the Supreme Court challenging the Gujarat government's ban on his book on Mohammad Ali Jinnah

Jaswant Singh, along with a representative of Rupa and Co, publisher of the book 'Jinnah - India, Partition, Independence', filed a petition in the apex court against the ban imposed by the Narendra Modi government on Aug 19.

The petition said, "The Gujarat government notification banning his book had no mention of the content which called for action and added that the ban was imposed without anyone reading the book."

The state government alleged that it had defamed the image of the country's first Home Minister Vallabhbhai Patel by 'questioning his patriotic spirit'.
