Blog: India’s challenge: intolerance vs intellectual freedom

31 Jan

Because of criticism from Hindu fundamentalists, the showing of a documentary by filmmaker Sanjay Kak at the
Symbiosis College of Arts and Commerce in Pune has been indefinitely postponed.
The conservative student organization Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parisha
protested Kak’s film, “Jashn-e-Azadi” (How we celebrate freedom), which is
critical of the Indian army’s role in Kashmir. In fact, the whole conference,
scheduled to start Friday, has been postponed, according to the investigative
magazine Tehelka
and the BBC.
