Press Release

We have received complaints from leaders of the Hindu community in Canada about disrespectful depiction of Hindu Gods on the poster of a film showcased as part of the 'Under the Tent' project at the Aga Khan Museum, Toronto.

Our Consulate General in Toronto has conveyed these concerns to the organizers of the event.

We are also informed that several Hindu groups have approached authorities in Canada to take action.

We urge the Canadian authorities and the event organizers to withdraw all such provocative material.
