Oh, FFS!

Now the Hindus are at it (via Pickled Politics):
An MF Husain exhibition in London was suddenly closed on Monday following threats from certain Hindu groups based in Britain.
An official at Asia House, London, said the decision was taken because of threats to the paintings.
The move followed demonstrations against the exhibition by several Hindu groups in Britain.
A local advocate Rajkumar Pande had filed a petition on March 3 alleging that an 'objectionable' painting had hurt the sentiments of Indians.
A local court had issued a summons last Wednesday against the noted painter and former Miss India Nafisa Ali on the 'objectionable' paintings of Mother India.

This is truly devastating news. The Indians are, along with the Jews, probably the most respected and admired minority group in Britain. Talented, productive, energetic, achieving. And they stoop to the level of the Islamics? This is quite disturbing. Hopefully, their parents will order them home and take away their allowance and tell them to stop making fools of themselves. This is really bad news.

Could someone please enlighten me on this? There was a summons, a prosecutor, and a rescheduled court date? The summons hasn't gone through Mumbai yet? They're prosecuting someone in India?What's the crime? Someone doesn't like your painting so there's prosecution for it? I don't understand. What's the punishment of this crime? WTF?

I didn't even read the whole article, benue, but they're prosecuting someone in India? There aren't enough Indians (1 bn and counting) to take offence in India? They need British Indians from the entitlement society to do it for them? Hello?
