Another Assault on Freedom

I have been travelling for the past week or so, and missed the plight of Chandra Mohan, an art student from Baroda arrested under the medieval Sec 295(a). In a scene straight out of a dystopian novel, VHP goons came and attacked his exhibition, then the police turned up, and instead of arresting the goons, arrested Chandra Mohan.

Chandra, now out on bail, has spoken out for the first time.
