James Laine vindicated
Supreme Court finally lifted its ill-advised stay of Bombay High Court's order lifting the ban on James Laine's book on Shivaji. Supreme Court's order, delivered by Justices D.K.Jain and H.L.Dattu, on July 9 is here. Earlier, James Laine refused to delete the paragraphs alleged by the State Government to offend, and as suggested by Justice Arijit Pasayat (since retired) when he heard the matter. Readers may find LAOT's earlier posts on this useful.
