Congress Government Glorifying Anti-Hindu Painter M.F. Husain

The other day I came across “India Perspectives” issue of September-October 2009, a monthly magazine published by Ministry of External Affairs in New Delhi. This magazine proclaims “to continue its tradition of providing intellectually stimulating and attractive contents to its readers.”
But to my dismay and disillusionment, I was shocked to see a four page review of an e-book on Maqbool Fida Husain >> who has gained ignominy and notoriety in India for painting vulgar and obscene images of Hindu Gods and Goddesses.
It is a well known fact that Mr. Husain is a notoriously obnoxious person who has made it his hobby to denigrate Hindu Gods and Goddesses by painting them in loutish and uncouth manner. A couple of years ago he had made a nude portrait of Bharat Mata for which he was widely condemned by Indian Parliament. He is a pervert. He has insulted Indian womanhood several times.
Instinctively, he is endowed with a fiendish mind which impels him to indulge in despicable activities calculated to cause torment and agony to Hindu people. His grotesque and insidious actions have created communal tension in India and deeply hurt Hindu sentiments. Under the guise of “Art” , Mr. Husain has offended the sensibilities of one billion Hindus. He has mistaken Hindus’ tolerance for their weakness. That is the reason he has been deliberately and maliciously demonizing Hindu Gods and Goddesses.
Husain is facing hundreds of police complaints in India. Courts have issued summons and arrest warrants against Husain in various cities like Indore and Delhi since mid-March 2006, for creating communal discord. According to the Police, this is why M. F. Husain has been absconding to UK. and Dubai (den of Dawoo Ibrahim’s D Company). As a matter of fact, he is a fugitive from justice.
According to Hindu Janjagruti Samiti, more than 28,000 people have signed a petition condemning Husain for his sinister attempts to vilify Hindus.
Police in India’s financial capital Mumbai (Bombay) had begun legal proceedings to seize the property belonging to Mr Husain about 4 years ago.
From the name, M.F. Husain appears to be a Muslim by faith. In that case, it is not understood as to what on earth prompts him to choose only Hindu Gods and Goddesses for such a disgraceful and ridiculous portrayal.
We should also note here that the Congress Government in India derives its legitimacy and sustenance from Hindus who form 83% of the total population. Hence, it is unbecoming on the part of Ministry of External Affairs to promote a criminal who has been condemned by Parliament. It amounts to aiding and abetting this delinquent in his slanderous activities against Hindus.
Dear friends, if you have time and your blood boils, you can register your protest by calling Joint Secretary, Ministry of External Affairs at 011-91-11-23389471, 23388873 or e-mail them at firstname.lastname@example.org.
