Canada museum issues apology after Indian High Commission seeks removal of controversial ‘Kaali’ poster

The poster of filmmaker Leena Manimekalai's documentary ‘Kaali’, featuring a woman dressed as Hindu goddess Kali and smoking a cigarette with a pride flag in the background, landed into a huge controversy. After the Indian High Commission in Canada urged the organizers of the event to withdraw all provocative material, the Aga Khan museum, which was hosting the event, issued an apology. Aga Khan museum in a statement said, “The museum deeply regrets that one of the 18 short videos from ‘Under the Tent’ and its accompanying social media post have inadvertently caused offence to members of the Hindu and other faith communities.” Meanwhile, FIRs were also filed against Leena in Delhi and Uttar Pradesh for hurting religious sentiments.
