Museums returning stolen artifacts


Guest : Ciraj Rassool

European museums are stuffed with artifacts looted all over the world or as they would
say "obtained" thru conquest or just plain theft but there is a growing movement
wanting these artifacts to be returned to their rightful owners . Museums argue that
they are the best place for these ancient and valuable items to stored and are holding it
for the benefit of future generations .
