“Shaitan” Statue At The Lahore Museum Has Apparently Been Covered
Before I make a plunge head-first, I think everybody merits a little backstory. Y’all think about the Lahore Museum, isn’t that so? Regardless of whether you don’t, I think the name is sufficiently obvious. About seven days back, individuals began seeing this 20-foot-tall statue of a “wicked animal” otherwise known as Shaitan in its ground. It got very some consideration via web-based networking media also. We kinda expounded on it as well.
The statue was made by an understudy from the College of Art and Design, a buddy named Irbaat Ul Hassan.
That statue should be a piece of a progression of statues that would’ve been revealed as a piece of an open air presentation. Be that as it may, before that could occur, individuals took to web based life to contradict the thought.
Somebody even began a request of against the thing.
Indeed, clearly, the judges of the Lahore High Court paid heed to this request of and lo and observe, it has been concealed at this point.
When there are 1.8 MILLION cases pending for LHC to take up ridiculous petitions like this is like an emergency room doctor letting a gunshot victim bleed out while he treats a runny nose. It is criminal.

I’m not even against this one, he makes a solid point.
This lady had an interesting take on the whole thing.
Can we sell this statute and deposit money in dam fund ?

Big lol, I think we can’t do that but that would’ve been funny.
This guy took the conversation towards Lahore’s ever-increasing air pollution
Given the air condition of Lhr city, covering the statue/Satan is actually good for it’s health. And LHC shouldn’t have ordered to do that as they said earlier that ‘to control Satan is our responsibility’ tau behtr tha k asthma se marnay dete ussay

Oof. Shots fired.
Some people were all for the statue being covered.
Symbols are extremely potent always have been always will be so I don’t see the placement or covering (in my opinion shoulda been a removal) as a frivolity at all.

The statue was of Dirtoo from Commander Safeguard, and the petition against it stated that it shouldn’t be put in museum since it holds no historical value. Which is completely fair. I understand the question on priorities though.
