Dear Sir,


Subject : Request to immediately stop display and sale of paintings of Anti-National and Anti-Hindu painter M F Husain.

This refers to ongoing Exhibition “Indian Portraits: The Face of a People” that opened at the Delhi Art Gallery on Tuesday 24-09-2013, at Hauz Khas Village and will run till Oct 26. We have high regard for Delhi Art Gallery However we are disappointed as you are displaying paintings of Anti-Hindu and Anti-National painter M F Husain. This shows that you are glorifying and assisting an accused person and also hurting religious sentiments of Hindus and National sentiments of Indians.

We would like to bring to your notice that MF Hussain 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). 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. This has resulted in promoting enmity between different religious groups and disturbing National integrity and harmony. He was accused of committing offenses 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. Please note that various organizations 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 (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 above you are requested to immediately stop display and sale of paintings of Anti-National and Anti-Hindu painter M F Husain.

Please acknowledge the receipt of this letter and inform us the action taken in the matter.

Detailed news about the auction

New Delhi : Documenting 250 years of Indian portraiture, an exhibition here brings together the work of artists like Raja Ravi Varma, Rabindranath Tagore, Jamini Roy, M.F. Hussain and F.N. Souza, to name just a few, and brings alive a bygone era.

“Indian Portraits: The Face of a People” that opened at the Delhi Art Gallery in Hauz Khas Village Tuesday and will run till Oct 26, traces the art of modern portraiture that came to India nearly three centuries ago by artists from Europe.

“In the 18th century, European artists came to India and started getting enough work in British India. But at the same time, they were increasingly drawn to painting the princes. Indian artists became threatened by this,” exhibition curator Kishor Singh told IANS.

“So, there was immense pressure on Indian artists to learn the western style of painting, which was more of oil on canvas. It was the same time when artists started painting in photograph style,” he added.

It wasn’t an easy task for Kishor Singh, who is also the head of exhibitions at Delhi Art Gallery, to compile this handsomely-curated exhibition.

It took him six years and going through more than 31,000 works from the archives of the gallery before he was able to form a storyboard that served as an anthology of portraits in India.

“If you go through the exhibition, you will realise in the very early portraits, artists would paint common people, especially women. You will not find paintings of royal families,” Kishor Singh explained.

“So these portraits were a representation of that era and encapsulate the changes the society underwent,” he added.
