Saatchi Gallery covers up to avoid upsetting Muslims

Saatchi Gallery covers up to avoid upsetting Muslims

So an American didn’t complain at their flag being disrespected, and a feminist didn’t complain about the nude, but of course muslims complained about the muslim prayer being combined with the other 2 images.

The gallery rejected demands to remove the paintings entirely, arguing that visitors should be able to see the works and draw their own conclusions. The artist instead requested they were covered.

While Saatchi claim to have stood their ground, and it was the artist SKU who offered the compromise to the demands of muslim gallery visitors, I notice Saatchi have also removed the image from their store.

Quilliam, said the works were ”really dangerous”, adding: “It’s The Satanic Verses all over again.”

So it’s right to back down then, because when you back down, they don’t come back and demand more.
