HJS’ success : Exhibition of M F Husain’s paintings in New Delhi gets cancelled !

Magh Shukla Trayodashi, Kaliyug Varsha 5113

O Hindus, let us offer gratitude at the holy feet of God for this success !

Mumbai : An exhibition and sale of paintings by M F Husain was to be held during the Winter Festival in Delhi till 29th February. The exhibition was to be held under the auspices of ‘Master Stroke’ by famous Art Gallery, viz. ‘Arts Elements Gallery, Delhi’. After Hindu Janajagruti Samiti (HJS) registered its opposition for including M F Husain’s paintings in the exhibition, it was informed by the Art Gallery that Husain’s paintings would not be included in the exhibition.

Mr. Shivaji Vatkar, the district coordinator of HJS for Mumbai sent a protest letter to the Art Gallery and called up its owner Mrs. Rupali Gupta explaining the matter to her over phone. Smt. Gupta thanked Mr. Vatkar and agreed to remove paintings by Husain from the exhibition and website including sales. Smt. Gupta has accordingly removed Husain’s paintings from the website. In the letter written to Mr. Vatkar, she has stated that she was also a Hindu and respected sentiments of Hindus and thanked him for explaining to her the issue. HJS activists paid a visit to the said Art Gallery when they observed that Husain’s paintings were not on display. It was put up on the notice board that Husain’s paintings were to be included in the exhibition but permission was not granted as such exhibition and sale of his paintings would not take place.

Thank you for your email. We are not displaying any hussain paintings and surely respect the sentiments as a hindu myself.

Please be rest assured that no Hussain paintings will be displayed and  we will try and remove his name from our media listings. We are a small gallery trying to promote  artists who do valuable and meaningful work

Please call me for any clarifications

Best Regards,

Rupali Gupta

Masters Strokes Paintings Exhibition.
Venue : Art Elements Gallery, New Delhi, 110016.

Dear Sirs,

Subject: Request to immediately stop display of paintings drawn by Anti-National and Anti-Hindu painter M F Husain through exhibition

This refers to ‘Masters Strokes Paintings Exhibition at Art Elements Gallery http://in.local.yahoo.com/delhi/events/masters-strokes-paintings-exhibition-0e015055e7ce81ab83f3a2fc207e1e50/ featuring M.F Husain.

We would like to bring to your notice that M. F. Husain has hurt the Religious and National sentiments of crores of Hindus and Indians through his blasphemous paintings of Hindu deities and Bharat Mata (Mother India). This has resulted in promoting enmity between different religious groups and disturbing National integrity and harmony. He was accused of committing offences under section 2 of the prevention of Insults to National Honour Act.

Hindu Janajagruti Samiti is a registered NGO doing social, religious and National welfare work. Devoted Hindus doing voluntary charitable work have formed this Samiti. Samiti is active throughout India and educating people about Dharma in scientific way and solving problems connected with National, Religious and social field. We strongly object to your online display of paintings of ‘Anti – National’ and ‘Anti – Hindu’ M.F. Husain.

Please note that in view of the above, various organisations and Indian citizens are not keen on any exhibition, distribution or sale of any of the paintings of M.F. Husain. A long list of successful campaigns against M.F.Husain can be seen on our website : https://www.hindujagruti.org/activities/campaigns/national/mfhussain-campaign/

(e.g. removal of Husain’s paintings from ABN Amro Bank’s Credit Card, NGO Khushi’s auction of 6 crores of rupees painting, Tao Art Gallery, India International Trade Center (New Delhi) etc.)

In view of this display of paintings of Anti-Hindu and Anti-National painter M F Husain will amount not only to assisting an accused person but also further hurting religious sentiments of Hindus and National sentiments of Indians. In fact Husain has also not spared animals as he has depicted his cruelty and perversion towards animals by drawing pictures of sexual union between animals and Hindu Goddess and human beings. e.g. He has drawn a painting showing a bull copulating with Goddess Parvati and Lord Shiva watching on Mahashivratri, another painting shows Hindu Goddess Durgadevi in sexual union with Lion.

Hence you are requested to immediately stop display of paintings drawn by Anti-National and Anti-Hindu painter M F Husain through exhibition and honour the National sentiments of Indians and religious sentiments of Hindus.
Please acknowledge the receipt of this letter and prompt action taken in the matter.

Yours Truly,

S.G.Vatkar
