Genoa, April 16 - A row erupted Monday after a
statue of an ancient Greek statesman was covered up for a
conference on Islam near Savona.
"There was no censorship" in draping the stature of Theban
leader Epaminondas, Liguria Islamic Federation chief Chams
Eddine Lahcen told reporters.
"I myself covered the statue but only for ceremonial reasons
and for a few hours. It clashed with the Moroccan setting. Our
Islam is moderate and this row wounds it".
Anti-migrant League leader Matteo Salvini latched onto the
case, saying "am I the only one this seems like madness to?".
Nationalist Brothers of Italy (FdI) MP Ylenja Lucaselli said
the covering up of Epaminondas and the bare back of a woman in a
painting was a "side effect of failed multiculturalism".
