Eady blocks Sikh libel case

Mr Justice Eady today put a permanent stay on a libel case brought by an Indian holy man against British journalist Hardeep Singh.
Mr Eady ruled that a 2007 article in the UK-based Sikh Times, in which Singh implied Sikh holy man Sant Baba Jeet Singh Ji Maharaj was a “cultist”, could not be judged in a libel court, as it was an argument of religious doctrine rather than establishment of fact.
