A sexually explicit art work depicting a Burkha-clad woman exposing a nipple sparked outrage among Muslims after it went on on display at a London gallery.
The image shows a woman in a full-length burkha – but instead of having a cut-out for the eyes, the cut-out exposes one of her nipples.
The artwork has already been condemned by the Union of Muslim Organisations of the UK and Ireland (UMO) as “blasphemous, cheap porn”.
A spokesman said: “At a time when tensions are already heightened, gallery owners shouldn’t be exhibiting artwork like this – it’s offensive, inflammatory. and degrading to Muslim women.”
