Protest in New York against M. F. Husain’s nude paintings of Hindu gods
and goddesses on March 20th from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon

Hindu Janjagruti Samiti in cooperation with Indian American
Intellectuals Forum, is organizing a peaceful protest against M.F.
Husain’s painting Ganga-Jamuna at Christie’s Art Gallery on March 20th
at Rockefeller Plaza from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon.

Mr. Husain is notorious for paintings pictures of Hindu Gods and Goddesses in nude.

Mr. Husain is a Muslim by faith. If he is so fond of Art, he should
paint some nude paintings of Prophet Mohammed or the members of his
family in nude and see what happens to him.

Mr. Husain is a fugitive from justice in India and a lot of court cases
are pending against Mr. Husain in India for hurting Hindu sentiments,
creating communal discord, and insulting Indian womanhood.
