Q.

This is regarding Chitra Padmanabhan's article on MF Hussain. She calls the protestors to hussain's work as vandals.

My question to Chitra and Hussain supporters is very simple.

Why are Hindu demigods and goddesses and mother India depicted nude in Hussain's paintings whereas Muhammad and his daughter is fully dressed?

MF Hussain cannot do what he does, in the name of art
He is hiding behind the Islamic rule, that one cannot show the image of the Prophet , his family or any of the Imams.
Islam does nbot accept idol or image worship.

Its not a million dollor, billion dollar or trillion dollor question
Its a googoooooooooooooooool dollar question, which has not been answered.
Justification is that similar depiction of god is given in temples, monuments, etc.
What if Christian, islamic, and other religius symbos, gods, idols, etc are treated the same way ? Will they keep quiet and accept it and tolerate similar justifications ???
