Loyola College Art Exhibition – Administration apologized

A big hue and cry has been raised over some satirical paintings and caricatures in an art exhibition in Loyola College, Chennai ( for which the administration of the college later apologized ).

But what was wrong with them ? I found nothing wrong.

Isn’t it true that the Sangh Parivar has disgraced Hinduism in the eyes of the whole world by lynching of Muslims, hate speeches against minorities, vandalisation of Christian churches, etc ? And isn’t it true that the BJP has made us a laughing stock before the whole world by having a cow ministry in a state formerly ruled by it ( Rajasthan ), by giving Minister status to 5 ‘Babas’ ( including Computer Baba ) in MP, by making a saffron clothed head of a math in Gorakhpur who had regularly spouted venom on minorities ( see his speeches on YouTube ) the Chief Minister of the largest state in India, by the Prime Minister spreading communal-ism by publicly demanding ‘shamshaanghat’ where there was a ‘kabristan’ etc and talking nonsense about India knowing head transplant surgery and genetic engineering, and by a Chief Minister saying there was internet in ancient India ?
I think the administration made a mistake by apologizing.
