Appeal to devout Hindus

Ministry of Information and Broadcasting, India is going to organise International Film Festival of India (IFFI) at Goa from 23rd November to 3rd December 2011. As per the schedule, they are going to screen a documentary directed by Anti-Hindu painter M F Husain in 1967 to pay homage to M F Husain, who passed away in June 2011 at London. M F Husain had drawn nude paintings of Hindu Deities and Bharat Mata and hurt religious and patriotic sentiments of billions of Hindus and Indians. Now, it is the duty of all devout Hindus and patriotic Indians to protest lawfully against IFFI organisers and demand cancellation of documentary being screened as part of homage to Anti-Hindu and Anti-National painter M F Husain; because he does not deserve such respect.

Panaji (Goa, India): The Hindu Janajagruti Samiti (HJS) has appealed to the Smt. Ambika Soni, Minister for I&B at the Centre; Shri. Digambar Kamat, CM of Goa; director of IFFI and director of the Entertainment Society of Goa (ESG) not to pay tribute to anti-Hindu painter M.F. Hussain who has painted nude and blasphemous pictures of Hindu deities and Bharatmata, at IFFI-2011. The HJS has also questioned that, is the Goa Government that put a ban on the movie ‘The Da Vinci Code’even before it screened in Goa because the religious sentiments of Christians would be hurt, going to act similarly to safeguard the religious sentiments of Hindus? HJS held a press conference today in a city. This press conference was addressed by Mrs. Rajshree Gadekar of HJS, Mrs. Shubha Sawant of Ranaraagini sect, Dr. Manoj Solanki of Sanatan Sanstha and Mr. Govind Choadankar of Gomantak Mandir & Dhaarmik Sanstha Mahasangh.

A documentary made by M.F. Hussain titled ‘Through the eyes of a painter’ is going to be screened at the IFFI on the 27th November as a tribute to him. On receiving information in this regard, the HJS delegation met Mr. Manoj Srivastav, CEO of the ESG and put forth its appeal. However, Mr. Srivastav said that Hussain’s program was not a part of its agenda. Thus, the state administration tried to misguide the HJS delegation. Yet, the HJS has put forth its appeal before the director of IFFI; I & B minister Smt. Soni and to the CM of Goa. About 1 thousand and 250 police complaints have been registered against Hussain’s derogatory paintings. This matter is sub-judice. Also, many agitations have been staged in this regard. Hence Hussain went into self-exile and had to take refuge in another country. Many prestigious awards to be given to Hussain were cancelled due to agitations. In this context, offering a tribute to the anti-Hindu painter Hussain would be akin to smearing salt on the wounds of the entire Hindu community.
