Delhi, Meerut courts order registering cases against Hussain

Delhi and Meerut courts today ordered police to register cases against artist M F Hussain for his alleged obscene paintings of Hindu gods and goddesses.

Delhi Metropolitan Magistrate Vikas Dhull, acting on a complaint by one Dr Ram Prasad Singh, ordered the police to register an FIR against Hussain and file a status report by the next date of hearing on August 14.

A Meerut court, holding the artist prima facie guilty of "tampering with the feelings of the Hindu community" by his paintings of Hindu gods and goddesses, asked police to register a case against him.

The order came on a petition by one Prem Pal Singh of Vishwa Hindu Parishad alleging that the artist had portrayed Hindu gods and goddesses in an "objectionable" manner in his paintings.

Singh’s counsel Ramkumar Sharma claimed the court had found Hussain guilty of "making objectionable paintings to hurt the feelings of a community and of disturbing communal harmony".
