    Delhi: VHP's women wing forces art gallery showcasing nudes to shut temporarily

    New Delhi: An art exhibition at the Delhi Art Gallery, showcasing a retrospective on modern nude art, ran into trouble on Monday night when VHP activists forced it to shut down temporarily. The exhibition was resumed after the organisers sought police protection.

    The protests, led by the Durga Vahini, the women wing of the Vishwa Hindu Parishad, objected to the Naked and the Nude exhibition which covers a large span of works ranging from Raja Ravi Verma, Souza, Husain, etc to modernists.

    The activists wanted a ban on the show as they said that the nude and obscene paintings portrayed women in a bad light.

    Gallery owner Ashish Anand, however, said the exhibition merely explored a popular thematic concept in art.

    Modi better distance himself from these retards if he has a hope in hell, especially considering his huge urban reliance.

    This is exactly what is wrong with "Hinduism" nowadays. Misinterpretation of history. Hindus have confused their identity and culture with Islamic era suppression of freedom of expression.
    The Vedic society was never this prude. At best, such things would have been ignored and people advised not to attend them. But trying to shut the exhibition down is an overkill. Makes us look no better than the retarded Mollahs.

    BJP should get rid of baggage called VHP & Bajrang dal. Otherwise no hope for BJP in General elections.

    Am I wrong, or isn't a major tourist draw in India temples where such depictions in sculpture are prized?

    Showing women in nude is not correct........

    May be you can display it in a private gallery, but not in a public gallery......

    If you ask what is wrong in doing so, then it is like encouraging nudity in public, which will have a bad effect in the public......

    Do you mean to say that even if a woman goes nude in public then it is ok for you. Think you are like Sunny leone, she said "rape is surprise sex and there is nothing wrong in rape":rofl:

    Modi wiped out VHP & Bajrang dal in Gujrat. He was named genghis and Babur by VHP for that. You all must have read the news already that he has even refused to visit VHP sponsored Sant Sammelan or congregation of saints just bcoz of his hatred for the politics of VHP. It was VHP & Bajrang dal which caused the riots in gujrat in 2002 and for which he is still paying the price. He is a true RSS man but he does not believe in the VHP brand of nationalism. He believes in the Brand which was propagated by Shri Vivekananda.

    Guys, what ever I am saying is just the funny side and please do not misunderstand me......

    Whether you show nudity or not, it is up to the individual who gets inspired by that and ends up in doing something wrong in a wrong place.......

    I will let the honorable court & rule of law decide what is right or wrong.

    And if you think showcasing nude art in public is bad, consider covering all those monuments, temples and sculptures involving nudity.

    Only perverts interpret as invitation to have sex in public.

    There is thin line between public exposure tolerance & BURKHA implementation.

    Bhai, read my next post.........

    Please do not misunderstand me and I was just joking.

    Even if a woman walks nude on the road it is the individuals perception, the way in which the person understands and reacts to it. But on the safer side we must not encourage public nudity......
