Protest : Online auction of Anti-National M.F. Husain’s paintings at Saffron Art Gallery

saffron_art_320Saffron Art Gallery will be conducting an online auction titled ‘The Ties That Bind: South Asian Modern and Contemporary Art’ from 30th November to 1st December 2016 on its website There will be an entire section devoted to MF Husain.

Hindu Janajagruti Samiti (HJS) have received several complaints from devout Hindus regarding upcoming auction sale of Anti-National M.F. Hussain’s paintings in Saffron Art Gallery of Mumbai.

Anti-National M.F. Husain has hurt the Religious and National sentiments of crores of Hindus because of his blasphemous painting of Hindu deities and naked Bharat Mata. In addition. There are numerous complaints lodged against M.F. Hussain for creating disharmony between different religious groups, selling obscene material and disturbing National integrity.

In September 2016 Saffron Art Gallery had conducted auction of the paintings of M.F. Husain in New Delhi and HJS team had appealed to Saffron Art Gallery’s management team requesting them not to conduct auction of the paintings of M.F. Husain in New Delhi on September 9, 2016. However then we did not receive any response from Saffron Art Gallery’s management team. Now again they are conducting online auction of paintings consisting M F Hussain’s paintings.

HJS now requests all readers to appeal against this auction peacefully and lawfully by either writing an email or calling the numbers below requesting to remove M.F. Hussain’s paintings from upcoming auction.
