The National College of the Arts in Lahore, Pakistan's leading art college, is under heavy criticism from Islamic traditionalists over its journal, which published homoerotic images that also depicted Muslim clerics, the Associated Press reported.

But those actions have not stopped the controversy. A court is considering blasphemy charges against the journal's editorial board and the head of the college.
