‘Ram-Katha’ panel of Hum Sab Ayodhya exhibition (Controversy)

Controversy over Sahmat’s
Hum Sab Ayodhya

The controversy concerning the exhibition Hum Sab Ayodhya raised in Parliament has caused us great pain. The exhibition is sensitively conceived and aesthetically designed, and has been researched by reputed historians and mounted by well known artists, designers and art historians. It is a tribute to the history, culture and civilization of Ayodhya and its people.

Among the 83 exhibition panels in the display is a 4-page text (NOT A POSTER)

titled ‘Ram Katha’ which depicts the Rama legend as the common heritage of several religious and secular traditions. The manner in which one particular sentence from here has been pulled out of context and indecently interpreted has dismayed and hurt the sentiments of all sensitive citizens.

We invite you to visit the exhibition Hum Sab Ayodhya at Teenmurti House on 21 August from 6 pm onwards. Eminent historians, art historians and designers will be present on the occasion.
