Dear VK Malhotra

Dear VK Malhotra

In your official capacity as deputy leader of the BJP in the Lok Sabha, and its parliamentary party spokesperson, you recently made a demand that Taslima Nasreen “be given full protection and citizenship.” You also said, “India believes in freedom of speech.”

I would like to applaud your sentiment. I have just one question for you: Does this mean you no longer have a problem with MF Hussain?

Regards

Amit Varma
