M F Hussain found guilty of ‘hurting Hindu sentiment’

A local court, on Wednesday, prima facie found artist M F Hussain guilty of hurting Hindu sentiment and asked police to register a case against him.

The order came on a petition filed by Prem Pal Singh of the Vishwa Hindu Parishad on March 20, alleging that the artist had portrayed Hindu gods and goddesses in an ‘objectionable’ manner in his paintings.

Singh’s counsel Ramkumar Sharma told reporters on Wednesday that the court had found Hussain guilty under various sections of Indian Penal Code in the case filed in the court of Additional Chief Judicial Magistrate A K Pathak.

He said that according to these sections, Hussain had been found guilty of ‘making objectionable paintings to hurt the feeling of a community and of disturbing communal harmony’.
