IT SEEMS FORBIDDEN FOR INDIAN "COOLIES" IN PARTITIONED INIDA (Broken Bharat), LIVING THE LIVES OF SLAVES UNDER THE JACKBOOT OF NEHRU/GANDHI DYNASTY, TO EDUCATE THEMSELVES ON THEIR OWN HISTORY.
AN EXHIBITION OF BARBARITIES OF AURANGZEB WAS BANNED IN CHENNAI. WHAT HOPE THEN OF ESTABLISHING A HINDU HOLOCAUST MUSEUM ANYWHERE?
SHAME ON THE NATION OF TIMID INDIAN "GOATS" IF THEY CANNOT EXTERMINATE THIS RULING & FOOLING PARTY OF UNCONDITIONAL SURRENDERS AND HIGH TREASON FROM THEIR MIDST.

CHENNAI: An art show at the prestigious Lalit Kala Akademi (LKA) here curated by journalist Francois Gautier was at the receiving end of moral policing when an exhibition on Mughal emperor Aurangzeb was shut down.
Stating that it had received three complaints that the show would disturb communal harmony, police on Thursday night burst into the exhibition, shut it down forcibly, took into custody three women associated with the hosting of the exhibition and seized some of the works on display.
The exhibition of 40 paintings, including exceptional miniatures by noted Indian artists, gathered together by Gautierâ€™s Foundation Against Continuing Terrorism (FACT) were on show at the LKA from March 3. The show included farmans (edicts issued by Aurangzeb) from the Bikaner museum and other material on Aurangzeb. It also contained two pictures depicting Aurangzebâ€™s army destroying the Somnath temple in Gujarat and the Kesava Rai temple in Mathura.
The organisers said they had the right to freedom of expression and the right to exhibit a show that had travelled all over India.
LKA regional secretary R M Palaniappan told the media he â€œshould have screened the exhibits more carefullyâ€?. Joint Commissioner of Police P Balasubramanian later told the media: â€œWe feared it might create a law and order problem.â€? The three women from FACT, Saraswathi (65), Vijayalakshmi (62) and Malathi (47), were picked up from the show at about 7.30 p.m. and taken to the police station, where they were allegedly held for nearly an hour without being allowed to contact their families or any lawyer.
