Anish Kapoor's ‘Hindu Taliban' Jibe And The Rajasthan Govt's Revenge

Eminent sculptor Anish Kapoor's characterisation of the Modi government as a "Hindu Taliban" has invited instant action from Rajasthan Government -- in an obviously retaliatory move, it has scrapped Kapoor's nomination from the Governing Board of Jaipur's Jawahar Kala Kendra. I am no advocate of the Modi government, but as things stand today, even I believe that the descriptor "Hindu Taliban" is quite far-fetched.
