Mumbai, June 23, 2021: In a follow-up to the defamation case filed by Salman Khan against Kamaal R Khan (KRK), the Mumbai city civil court has restrained KRK from posting or publishing any defamatory content about the Bollywood superstar, his business ventures and/or films. 

This is an interim order that has been passed by the court after hearing the civil suit filed by Salman and will continue until the court passes judgement in the case, India Today reported.

Earlier, Salman Khan had filed a defamation suit against KRK, where a notice was sent to the self-proclaimed movie critic by Salman’s legal team. KRK had shared the news on Twitter in May 2021.

The restraining order was passed by Additional Sessions Judge C V Marathe in the notice of motion filed by Salman Khan in his defamation suit. 

While allowing the interim relief, the Sessions judge observed that reputation is “not only a salt of life but the purest treasure and the most precious perfume of life”. 

Judge Marathe 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”. In the 13-page order, 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”, reported India Today.
