Police interrupt Neena Prasad's Mohiniyattam performance in Palakkad, dancer says felt humiliated

Palakkad: Danseuse Neena Prasad expressed disappointment over the police for interrupting her Moyiniyattam performance staged at Government Moyan LP School here. Taking to Facebook, she revealed that police stopped her performance as per the order of the district judge Kalam Pasha who was staying behind the school.

As part of the cultural programmes in the school, Neena Prasad was invited to perform Mohiniyattam concert on Saturday evening. But police reached the venue and directed the organisers to stop the programme.

In the Facebook post, she added that she was insulted as an artiste.

Neena Prasad started the post by saying that it is for the first time she had such an experience as an artiste.

The post said that the police had asked her to stop her performance within minutes after starting the performance.

" As an artiste and woman, I felt humiliated and I would like to record my protest. The district judge had asked the organisers to stop the event as he was having trouble with the music," wrote the dancer.

The judge granted permission to continue the event only if the audience is seated near the stage and the music is played at a low volume.

The organisers said that the police had forcibly stopped the event by 8.30 pm.
