feeling of any community but seems that he can if he is in India.. ..
why was he hell bent upon painting nude hindu godess.. it seems every
community has the right to be emotional about their religious feelings
except hindus..could he ever paint Mohommad or his wife ....the ruling
party congress just to grab muslim votes always indulges in bashing
majority community.. strange when a common man can not see through
MF Hussain chose to stay out of this country out of his own choice..
he rather displayed arrogance by sticking to the stand that he will
keep on painting the same it is the country's majority which has to
adjus and accommodate..
