BBC: Theatre ends play in Sikh protest. So, should you want to deny someone their freedom of speech and expression, you merely need stage a violent protest and you’ll get your own way. What’s the fuck’s going on here? I’m not necessarily a fan of insulting people’s religion, but if you don’t approve of a play, here’s a clue: don’t go to see it. Are the police afraid of being accused of cultural insensitivity or something? If there’s a danger of more violence, it is their duty to protect the theatre, not the responsibility of the theatre to cancel a play out of fear. I’m really beginning to despair of this country. I really am.
