The sprint review is held privately

We are still new to Scrum. We implement Scrum by including all the elements as mentioned in the Scrum guide. The organisation I am working for prefers to have "closed" Sprint Review meetings. The review is attended by the development team and the stakeholders, and not by other employees in the organisation. The sprint demo is exhibited in a separate meeting. The organisation wants to mitigate the time spent by the team in the review, and provides a bare minimum feedback to save upon time. The Scrum events are not public. I feel this is contrary to the Scrum process since Scrum advocates transparency and trust. I plan to suggest that the events should be made public. I want to welcome your opinions regarding the sprint review being made public.
