Congress leader Salman Khurshid's new book 'Sunrise Over Ayodhya exploring the contours of the landmark Ayodhya judgment has created a stir and given rise to a slew of controversies ever since it was released.

The apple of discord between the critics of the book and the veteran politician is an excerpt from the book that compares the political ideology of Hindutva to the terrorism perpetuated by extremist organizations and terrorist outfits like ISIS.

From political uproar, ideological disagreements and vandalism of his office property in Nainital, Khursheed has seen it all in the last week. 

On the legal side, there are parties approaching the court of law to seek a blanket ban on the publication in sale of the congress leader's book.
