New York (USA):
Christie's 20th March auction will feature several denigrating paintings by Painter M.F. Husain, besides the one about Ganga-Jamuna.
Hindu Janjagruti Samiti in cooperation with Indian American Intellectuals Forum, is organizing a peaceful protest against M.F. Husain's painting Ganga-Jamuna at Christie's Art Gallery on March 20th at 20 Rockefeller Plaza from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon.
Mr. Husain is notorious for paintings pictures of Hindu Gods and Goddesses in nude.
Mr. Husain is a Muslim by faith. If he is so fond of Art, he should paint some nude paintings of Prophet Mohammed or the members of his family in nude and see what happens to him.
As most of you know Mr. Husain is a fugitive from justice in India. A lot of court cases are pending against Mr. Husain in India for hurting Hindu sentiments, creating communal discord, and insulting Indian womanhood.
