On the heels of the controversial pulling down of a cartoon of Kashmiri artist Mir Suhail which triggered a wave of outrage across social media, social networking website Facebook Thursday blocked legendary Bengali musician Kabir Suman’s page for mentioning Afzal Guru’s name in a song eulogizing “Kashmiri freedom struggle”.
Musician Kabir Suman found his Facebook page down soon after he uploaded lyrics lauding Guru.
To mention Suman has translated a poem of noted Kashmiri poet Agha Shahid Ali into Bengali.
Suman, in his song has mentioned Afzal Guru, a Kashmiri businessman whose “controversial hanging” in 2013 has earned India and its judiciary a hefty criticism.
