It was claimed that ‘LoveRatri’ [Night of Love] hurts sentiments of Hindus and distorts the meaning of ‘NavRatri’ [Nine Nights], a sacred festival. After doing the needful, Salman Khan, on 18.09.2019, thus tweeted:Hon’ble Supreme Court of India, on 27.09.2018, having regard to the assertion that ‘LoveYatri’ [Journey of Love] has obtained certification from Central Board of Film Certification, protectively ordered that no coercive action shall be taken against Salman Khan. Further, no first information report/criminal complaint/criminal proceeding shall be entertained if the allegations relate to ‘LoveYatri’ or its contents [Salman Khan v. The State of Gujarat, Writ Petition (Criminal) No. 270 of 2019]. It was noticed, on 29.11.2019, ‘the film has been released and is displayed all over since then’. Thus, any first information report/criminal complaint/criminal case against Salman Khan in connection with ‘LoveYatri’ was quashed.
'The Last Word' seeks to include not only wise and witty sayings but also curiosities. These words are not of obligation but of delight. I am not alone in my refusal to believe that law is tedious. For all that has escaped these percipient eyes, mea culpa maxima. History, after all, has many cunning passages, contrived corridors and issues.
