Hardliners turned Indian theatre into battleground during Modi's rule: Report

A special report of a leading international news agency says the government of Prime Minister Narendra Modi in India has proved a battleground for the artist and laureate community.

According to the report, Hindu hardliners turned Indian theatre into a battleground during Modi`s rule.

Work of several playwrights, filmmakers, musicians, and comedians was either censored or cancelled following pressure and physical threats from Hindu extremist groups that multiplied since Narendra Modi came to power in 2014.
