Kolkata unrest over Kali image
In its Monday edition, The Telegraph English language daily carried a morphed picture of a naked woman holding an image of the goddess Kali in front of a cricketer — believed to be a Pakistani — bowing before it.
The newspaper had taken the picture from the Twitter account of a reader.
However, its publication caused an outcry that has sparked tension and violence between the Hindu and Muslim communities in different parts of the city, despite a swift apology from the newspaper.
Hindus and Muslims have been involved in street brawls and pelted passing traffic and members of the public with stones.
