Lahore High Court (LHC) has issued a notice to Chief Secretary Punjab and Director of Lahore Museum on Thursday to submit a reply on pertaining to a petition seeking the removal of ‘Satan’s Sculpture’ from outside the Lahore Museum. The petitioner Barrister Ambreen Qureshi contended in the petition that the statue is horrifying the children. It has no link to the art, science, culture, and education.
“This sculpture has nothing to do with our culture whereas the purpose of a museum is to preserve our history and culture,” Qureshi stated and requested the court to order its removal. Justice Muhammad Farrukh Irfan was hearing the petition and asked the directives for its removal.
“To control Satan is the responsibility of us all,” observed the judge who was thankful that at least someone came out against the devil. A student of Punjab University College of Arts and Design (PUCAD)- Ibraat Ul Hasan had made the 20-feet high sculpture which was placed in the front yard of the museum.

کیا “بفومیٹ” بنانا محض ایک پروجیکٹ تھا؟
یہ رہی صیہونی خدا بفومیٹ کی پاکستان میں لانچنگ تقریب. جو لوگ کہہ رہے تھے یہ محض ایک طالب علم ارتبت کی تھیسز کا پروجیکٹ تھا، ان کو یہ وڈیو دیکھ کر اپنی آنکھیں کھول لینی چاہیں. pic.twitter.com/30IGcjedIh

زرداری اور نواز کی موجودگی میں شیطان کے مجسمے کو ایک میوزم ہر رکھنے پر اعتراض اور یہ شیطان روز ہر وقت TV پر نظر آتے ہیں اس پر کوی اعتراض نہیں

Another Harsh Reply!
A statue depicting a demonic entity rightly attracts disgust in Lahore / Pakistan
But what of those who do Satan’s bidding?
Look closer: for a start, ask who has changed usury (riba’) from being haram to being lawful? https://t.co/NbrjZPSQ1h

According to media reports, the museum has hidden the 20-feet sculpture with cloth now. The administration has told the local media news channel that the statue is not a part of the museum, but a part of an exhibition being held there.
