India's index of intolerance: The full list
From a ban on books and films to shunning of individuals, can we afford to ignore the growing rot of intolerance?

New Delhi: From a ban on books and films to the increasing number of cases of harassment of individuals by politically motivated groups, is the growing rot of intolerance now too widespread to ignore? Is this attack on freedom of expression acceptable in a democracy?

Kamal Haasan faced the brunt of this recently when the Tamil Nadu government caved in to the demands of fringe groups who claimed parts of his latest film Vishwaroopam was derogatory to Muslims. A song from the film David was deleted because of the same reason.

Fringe Muslim groups took to the streets in Kolkata, protesting against author Salman Rushdie's visit to the city. The author was forced to cancel a promotional event for his forthcoming film 'Midnight's Children'.

Rajasthan Police summoned sociologist Ashis Nandy for questioning in connection with the controversial remark he made against the Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes and Other Backward Classes at the Jaipur Literature Festival.

Here is a list of stories that reflect India's index of intolerance.
