While I appreciate his art, he has brought most of the troubles on himself with his art by depicting the Hindu Goddesses in nude etc. thus enraging a section of the society. Freedom of expression cannot be onesided. He is not alone in hiding. Salman Rushdie, Taslima Khan etc. are also affected. When the cartoons about Prophet Mohammad appeared in a Danish newspaper, hell broke loose.

One has to be sensitive to society too.

Artistic expression does not mean you have the freedom to do anything in the name of art?? First of all he is a Muslim and Muslims are forbidden to indulge in photos,portraits and images as that amounts to IDOL WORSHIP. So, why this MF Hussain is doing idol worship and that too by making NUDE paintings of Hindu gods and godesses???

I think he is a great artist and needs to be maintained so; his strokes with the brush are so artistic. Many of his paintings are of too much value and I guess people found a way through the law to obtain them and sell them elsewhere.
