Toronto (Canada) – Hindus are protesting against the Documentary ‘Kali’ in which the actress in the attire of Mahakali is shown smoking a cigarette. Indian High Commission here had demanded the removal of the said poster from Aga Khan Museum.

Thereafter the poster was removed by the Museum and they have apologised also. They have said that this documentary, ‘Kali’ was one among the 18 Documentaries in the project, ‘Under the Tent’. Hence Hindu sentiments were hurt unintentionally.

The producer of the Documentary, filmmaker Leena Manimekalai has not yet apologised or removed the poster. She reacted saying, ‘I will keep on raising my voice.’ On the other hand, Twitter has removed the tweet by Manimekalai.

Editorial viewpoint

When Hindu sentiments are hurt they protest in legitimate way, whereas people of other faiths take to weapons. No need to tell separately who shows tolerance ?
