KRK Restrained From Posting Any Content Against Salman Khan On Social Media; Mumbai Court Passes Interim Order In Defamation Case
Bollywood star Salman Khan had filed a defamation suit against Kamaal R Khan (KRK). Earlier, a notice was sent to the self-proclaimed critic by Salman Khan’s legal team. In a significant development in the defamation case filed by actor Salman Khan against Kamaal R K (KRK), according to a new report, the Mumbai Court has passed an interim order after hearing the civil suit. The report mentioned that the new order has restrained KRK from posting content against Salman on social media.

According to a report in India Today, a restraining order was passed by Additional Sessions Judge C V Marathe in the notice of the motion filed by Salman Khan in his defamation suit. As per the report, while allowing the interim relief to KRK, the Judge observed that the reputation is "not only a salt of life but the purest treasure and the most precious perfume of life". The Judge added that "a good name is better than riches. Reputation is a sort of right to enjoy the good opinion of others and it is a personal right and an injury to the reputation is personal injury. A good reputation is an element of personal security and is protected by the Constitution equally with the right to the enjoyment of life". A 13-page order that was passed, in it, the judge further opined, "Reputation and honour are no less precious to good men than bodily safety and freedom. In some cases, they may be dearer than life itself."

As per the report, the lawyer appearing for Salman Khan and KRK made their arguments in court. The report mentioned that after hearing the arguments from both sides, the judge concluded that the tweets or videos do not refer to the content of the film. He stated that they are “very clearly lower down Salman Khan's image in the society", portraying Salman as a "criminal, cheater and person with no dignity". The court further mentioned that KRK had failed to explain his defamatory statements. As per the report, the court maintained that if defamatory words are permitted to be continued, then it will cause irreparable loss to Salman Khan’s image.
