Is it in the blood of these people or are they like that by birth ?
I am talking about people like M F Hussain. Some may call him artist, I call him a hurtist, one who hurts the feelings of others, just because those others don’t react.
Yes, I am talking about the nude paintings of Hindu gods and goddesses by this stupid person who believes that scratching lines and giving strokes like a nursery child is world class painting !
Let me make it clear. I am not objecting to the nudity in his paintings. There are hundreds of nude images and sculptures on the temples of India which are of world class unlike the stupid lines and strokes of Hussain. Nor am I saying this because Hussain is a Muslim.
What I am objecting is to the mindset of this person. Look at some of his work here.
All Hindu gods and goddesses Lakshmi, Parvati, Saraswati, hanuman, Ganesh.. even mother India-Bharatmata are painted nude…
Well, let us for a moment think this is art.. but then look at his other set of paintings..
Hussain’s mother, his daughter, prophet’s daughter, Muslim poets, Muslim lady are all painted with full clothes! What does this mean? Isn’t he trying to create unnecessary religions tension in the society?
Thankfully Hindus dont believe in an eye to eye approach, because as Gandhi said ‘An eye for an eye leaves the whole world blind’.
It is people like Hussain who make this entire earth a hell. These are the ones who spread hatred amongst otherwise calm and peaceful societies. The government should be strong enough to arrest and throw these people behind the bars for inciting communal tensions in the country.
If the danish cartoonist has hurt the feelings of muslims worldwide by depicting funny cartoons of prophet, then so has Hussain hurt the Hindu sentiments by his paintings. Both are equally guilty of spreading religious hatred.
My suggestion is to ignore such people. We have to be informed about what they did. But we should not react to them. They are silly insane people.
There is a saying in India “If a mad dog bites a man, should he bite back to that dog?”
So my request to all my Hindu, Muslim, Christian brothers is.. don’t react to such people, be it a cartoonist or a painter.. they do such things for cheap publicity since they don’t have any real talent to show.. a Fine Arts student of Bangalore’s Chitra Kala Parishat draws better paintings than Hussain or the cartoonist..
As they say in India “A dog’s barking cannot spoil heaven”
Dogs like Hussain or the danish cartoonist cant spoil our heaven.
