New Delhi: 27th August,2016, Cafe De Art Gallery, Connaught Place. It was a black day for the whole literary fraternity because the Book written by Dr. Kaynat Kazi on well known Hindi author Krishna Sobti namely “कृष्णा सोबती का साहित्य और समाज” could not released due to Krishna Sobti’s threaten. Actually, Dr. Kaynat Kazi arranged a Book release & Photo Exhibition (Sabrang) programme in the Gallery.

Sushil Bharti ji-Filmmaker & Station Director of Radio Noida anchor the whole event efficiently.
Sh. Vijay Kranti ji who was the Chief Guest of the said book release & Photo Exhibition boldly expressed the following comments his personal Facebook Page today.
KRISHNA SOBTI INTELLECTUAL TERRORISM AGAINST A MUSLIM WOMAN WRITER
I attended the function to inaugurate Dr. Ms. Kaynat Kazi’s photo exhibition today at CAFE DE ART in Connaught Place She was so terrorised by Ms. Krishna Sobti Ji’s threats that she pushed the book launch out of the event’s agenda. Interestingly Sobti is neither the author nor publisher of the book. This book is just based on Dr. Kaynat Kazi’s PhD on literature of Krishna Sobti.
And now she herself is publicly demonstrating her intellectual intolerance by threatening the lady author of severe legal consequences if she got her book launched by intellectuals whom she does not like for her personal political reasons.
Even, Sh.Sachichinand Joshi ji & Sh.Anant Vijay were also unhappy on this non-release of book issue. All media person, friends, family, relatives of Dr. Kaynat were also amazed & annoyed to see such humiliating situation. It was really very sad incident for the whole literary world.
