    The Congress’s censorship goes on. After objecting to certain parts of Prakash Jha’s movie Rajneeti, the party is now up in arms against Madrid-based writer Javier Moro’s novel based on its president Sonia Gandhi’s life.
    The Spanish book is called El Sari Rojo (The Red Sari, subtitled When Life is the Price of Power), a reference to the red sari Sonia wore on her wedding day, “one that Nehru wove while he was in jail”. First published in October 2008, the book has already been translated into Italian, French and Dutch, and an English translation by Peter Hearn is ready for publication.
    And the trouble has begun for The Red Sari.
    In an email, Moro, 55, said that Sonia’s lawyers, including Congress spokesperson Abhishek Singhvi, “have just written to my Italian and Spanish publishers to demand the withdrawal of the book from the stores. Nobody understands very well why, but that’s what they are up to”.

    New Delhi, Jun 6: Spanish writer and the author of the book 'The Red Saree', Javier Moro, said that he would sue the politician Abhishek Manu Singhvi, as he has accessed the version of his book illegally. Moro said that Singhvi, who was harassing him since long, was terrorising the publishers through his statements.

    Abhishek Manu Singhvi had remarked that the book is a fictionalised account of the life of Sonia Gandhi.

    The book was first published in Spanish with a title 'El Sari Rojo' in 2008. It is set for India release but has stirred a storm with Congress chief's lawyers served the writer with a legal notice and also described it as containing 'untruths, half truths, falsehoods and defamatory statements'.

    "I don't know how Abhishek Manu Singhvi or others have got their hands on the version when the book is not even in the market yet," Moro said.

    Sonia gandhi acts as a dictator .One of the biggest proof of that is the ban on hindu fanatic site hindu unity on pzboard after they published that rahul gandhi raped a girl.
    even pzboard removed that forum out of fear of gandhi family
    On internet you can find sites slandering all religions,gods,goddesses ,RAm,mohammed jesus guru nanak yet hardly any site get banned in India but if any site start spreading rumours about gandhi family then no one can save you
