Iranian Photographer in Hiding Due to Criticism of Islam

Sooreh Hera, a photographer of Iranian origin, has written to Dutch Minister of Education, Culture and Science Ronald Plasterk, asking for his support to work freely. For the second time in her life she is in hiding due to her criticism of Islam. The Hague Municipal Museum had initially accepted all of her work for exhibit but later excluded a picture of two homosexual men with masks who represent the prophet Mohammed and his son-in-law Ali.
