M F Husain booked for his paintings of nude gods


February 07, 2006 01:52 IST

Several right wing Hindu organisations have raised a cry against Husain's series of paintings depicting Hindu gods and goddesses in the nude.

The Hindu

ADILABAD: The Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) and the Hindu Samaj Utsav Samiti (HSUS), Adilabad, threatened to launch protests if noted painter M.F. Hussain was not arrested and the Padmashri and Padmabhushan awards were not withdrawn immediately. Their other demand was to declare him a 'traitor' as he had painted Bharat Mata in the nude. The Hindu organisations said that the painter had once again denigrated Hindu gods and goddesses by painting them in the nude.

As i was reading these articles , i thought people are blashphemous all the time !! Whether its towards Hinduism , Islam, Christians , Buddhism.
The West and the Islamic Countries like Saudi Arabia , Iran , Syria  have openly shown Blashphemy more than once .

I personally am against any kind of Blashphemy , and condone such incidents . But i also condone violence in the name of religon in every circumstance .

I am personally glad that this M.F.Hussain did not snow ball into an international incident or an incident where the whole Muslim community was blamed due to Mr.Hussains insenstive blashphemous paintings .

Also the Hindu community has been mocked regulary by the West , but Hindus have shown nothing but tolerance !! Is this acceptable ?????????

The paintings didn't just depict nudity, but bestiality too. Dead

Hope M. F. Hussain is punished appropriately as per the law.

I'm also glad that it hasn't turned violent as of yet. Let's hope it stays that way and that the extremists dont make it a part of their rioting agenda.

I personally don't expect India and the Hindus to riot over this and make it a Hindu- Muslim issue . I personally do feel that Indians are a tolerant lot !  And an average Hindu is not a zealous fanatic . Yes there is the Bajrang Dal , VHS , Shiv Sena and some other Hindu Extremist Political Parties , but the average -Hindu Janta is not fanatical about their religon ! Thank god !!Tongue

I personally am glad M.F.Hussain with drew his painting from his auction and i personally don't need to see him punished.

M.F. Hussain has been using his artistic freedom to depict Indian goddesses in the buff for years now and getting away with it, all because of the average Hindu's, high level of tolerence. Infact, I find the Hindu religion the most accomodating of most religions. This is my personal view.

Coming back to M.F. Hussain and his drawings of Hindu dietys in the buff, I wonder if it ever occured to him that by such depiction he in reality, is treading on flare terrain and stoking passion flames amongst followers of the religion.

Average people of any religion never make rioting a part of their agenda. They have other things to do. Only the extremists and certain people in power do so.

I guess he wants to see how far he can go in "expressing" himself without creating any violent protests. Tongue
