Soon after the news portal ‘The Wire’ was restrained from publishing or broadcasting reports based on its article on a company run by BJP chief Amit Shah’s son, Congress leader took a dig at PM Narendra Modi saying he would neither speak nor let others do so about “Shah-Zada”(referring to Jay Shah).
It’s worth mentioning that ‘Zada’ is a Persian suffix used as part of titles for members of royalty, denoting the sons and daughters of a king.
Additional Senior Civil Judge of Ahmedabad (rural) court had granted an injunction on Jay Shah’s plea on Monday restraining the defendants from publishing, printing, telecasting, broadcasting or holding debates in any language on the basis of the article published by the news portal, pending hearing and disposal of the matter.
Jay Shah had recently filed a criminal defamation case against The Wire after it published an article claiming the turnover of a company run by him saw a huge rise after the BJP came to power at the Centre in 2014.
Referring to an interim injunction granted by an Ahmedabad court on a criminal defamation case filed against The Wire by Jay Shah, Rahul Gandhi tweeted, “Mitron (friends), will not speak about ‘Shah-Zada’, nor will let anyone speak”.
Soon after the report was published by The Wire, the Congress party demanded the removal of Amit Shah as BJP president and questioned Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s “silence” on the issue.
