Model’s nude PETA photo causes outrage
In deeply conservative India, nudity is about as acceptable as taking your nuptials for the second or third time. The Hindustan Times reports on an interesting story about an Indian model who stripped for PeTA. The story doesn’t mention that PETA has used the trick of nude modeling a lot before – to a lot of success. Makes interesting reading:
“Move over Poonam Pandey offering to strip for the Indian cricket team, the latest to join the stripper bandwagon is item girl Liza Malik. The model’s nude photoshoot for PeTA (People for Ethical Treatment of Animals) has angered the women’s NGO Nari Samman Sangathan.
The picture is for PeTA’s campaign against the use of leather balls in cricket, in which Malik is posing in the buff behind a ball cutout. However, the NGO believes the photo is publicity stunt.
“How can the lady protect animal rights by posing nude? If you want to contribute to a noble cause, you can do that by extending financial help, but, in Liza’s case, it looks fishy since a lot of aspiring models work with established NGOs like PeTA simply to propagate nudity and garner cheap publicity,” NGO president Sundari Thakur told Mid Day.”
