A temporary stay on the sale of a new book on Tipu Sultan written by Rangayana director Addanda C Cariappa was vacated by a court in Bengaluru on Thursday, 8 December.
Additional City Civil and Sessions Judge JR Mendonca vacated an earlier temporary incubation issued by the court against the author of ‘Tipu Nija Kanasugalu’, its publisher Ayodhya Publication and printer Rashtrotthana Mudranalaya.
The earlier injunction, however, did not prevent the respondents from printing the book at their risk and storing the ones which are already printed.
On Thursday, the court dismissed the suit against the book filed by the former chairman of the District Wakf Board Committee and Bengaluru resident BS Rafiulla.
The next hearing of the case will take place on 23 January 2023.
The suit claimed the book “contains wrong information without any support or justification from history” which hurt the feelings of the Muslim community.
