Ire, indifference after closure of ‘objectionable exhibition’

  • tags: no_tag

    • Anger and indifference are the two main reactions expressed here Friday following Thursday’s closure of an “objectionable exhibition” organised by French journalist and political commentator Francois Gautier at the Lalit Kala Akademi (LKA). The exhibition claimed to “expose the misdeeds against Hinduism during the Mughal period”.

      Following Muslim protests, the exhibition of paintings and reproductions of Arabic and Persian documents alluding to destruction of Hindu shrines at the LKA here since Monday was closed down to “prevent a law and order situation”.
