Made for each other: Hindu fanatics in Australia and Muslim fanatics in India
I'm currently having a debate with a FB group called Say No to "GANESH VERSUS THE THIRD REICH" regarding the Council of Indians in Australia that is trying to block the staging of a play in Australia.
But as expected, their counterpart in India – a fanatic group of Muslims – has objected to a cartoon published on 20 September 2011 in Indore (these people seem to be made for each other).
I've requested a friend in Indore for a scanned copy of the cartoon, but in the meanwhile let me note my ABSOLUTE FRUSTRATION and unhappiness with people all over the world who are trying to repress and block freedom.
Please let us learn to live and let live. Let people say what they wish. We need a thick skin and a lot of tolerance. Don't take the world into medievalism.

A person on this FB group alleged that they were being "harmed" by the play.
What's the harm? Can you be very explicit and very detailed? Where is the cut on your body? Where is the blood? Have you been hospitalised?
Harm does not always need to be physical or involve physical injuries or cuts. An injured person does not always need to be hospitalized. Even illnesses can be physical and non-physical.
what precisely was the harm? If not physical then where? In the head? Which part of the head hurt? Can we have X-rays of the head? (or whatever it is that detects that pain)?
Waiting for a response. Will update as more info comes in.
