Mahalinga means erect penis that the entire Hindu faith fools worship!
One of them is called Linga Raja temple. In this more than 1600 year old temple a granite Linga as high as more than a metre, stands on a yoni, female genital as they remain inseparable, has around it carved out 1000 mini mahalingas. It is guarded by a hooded cobra of stone.
Even today people go there to smear sandal and vermillion paste around it before placing on fresh red flowers as worship of veneration!
I ask my own Hindu Hooligans to visit Ellora´s single rock temple. There you can see obscene hanging like six o´clock penis every where carved out. In other temples there are wood carvings depicting birth of Rama and his three half brothers.
Elsewhere, I have a photograph of a masturbating Hanuman in wood carving.
In Pashupathi Nath temple Kathmandu, the sole Hindu kingdom of yesterday there is a eight feet high Bhairava statue showing almost two feet long bronze penis pipe.
Hindu women come there to smear sandal and vermillion paste around it seeking the grace of a baby as if bronze penis ejaculates sperm!
I write this to ask do you have no shame Hindu faith fools to indulge in these farce devotion and then condemn my old friend the late Maqbool Fida Hussain born at the Hindu pilgrimage centre Phandarapur in Maharashtra on September 17, 1915.
Do you know once he visited the SitaladeviTempleat Mahim with me, which is not far away from the Mahim Causeway where Muslims sell Bambu polls. I had also visited a mosque with him around Bandra patronized mostly by butchers.
What the hell is wrong? Do you know Shirdi Saibaba was an immigrant Muslim?
Today most of his followers are Hindu. The late Puttaparthi Raju renamed himself as Satya Saibaba sprouting hair upwards. Did your faith fool sentiments hurt then?
There is no imaginable absurdities and obscenities kept unobserved religiously by faith fool Hindu Hooligans,HH.They go to pilgrimage to Haji Malang Hill, close to Kalyan, beyond the borders of megalopolis Bombay hoping the grace of the sufi saint buried there will bring enormous wealth.Come on where are your sentiments. You go in Rajasthan at Karni temple to feed rats as elephant headed Ganesha´s vehicle.
Now about the special tormentors of Maqbool Fida Hussain during his very old age, last leg of the journey in this world as a born Muslim not out of his own choice.
These have named themselves Bajranga, meaning diamond penis,rape penis Dal,brigade. I would like to tell you more about your king of gods, Indra. Do you worship him praising as one sporting 1000 yonis, female genitals all over the body. He got these Chinese eye like yonis as punishment from sage Gauthama for seducing his wife Ahalya by deception as a sweet cat.
You worship the same infidel Ahalya as the first of the five virgins,worthy of worship. The next virgin for you is polyandrous Draupadi who married in all five brothers sharing them in a cycle of two ito five ten years. She had confessed she would have loved to sleep with a sixth one, hinting that her mother-in-law Pritha had nursed a son even before she got married,later she mated males of her own choice not the married herbend.Even after marriage the mother of her herbands had all her sons by infidelity.
The third is Sita,the sole wife of Sri Rama of Ayodhya,an exceptional woman. The fourth virgin was monkey queen Tara, the mother of Angada, shared by Monkey King siblings Vali and Sugreeva alternatively.
Finally the fifth is architect Maya´s daughter Mandodari, who gave birth to Brahman monster ten headed Ravana´s son Meghanada.
These five women of old,all mothers, who had their full share of sufferings and are considered great virgins worthy of worship to get rid of the worst of sins!
With such a record of hypocrisy all around you Hindu Hooligan sons and daughters of Mahalingas´ go crazy to torment an old man for his creative works of 35 years old or even older. I remember Maqbool Fida made a Haj during the sixties. No one addressed him Haji Hussain. On his return he painted Ramayana.
Writing a review of that exhibition of his I gave it the headline “Ramayana by Haji”, then not even my enemy friend Balya Thackery, the Meinduck complained against it.
I know the reason why Hindu Hooligans went after Maqbool Fida Hussain in this century. It was because a Hindu Vishva Parishad Marwari signed an agreement to buy his 200 paintings a year at ten million rupees a piece.He wanted to get the paintings at revised reduced rates.Hussain did not care since his paintings were in demand all over.
As for Hussain, he was normal all human. Full of humour and good taste. No airs. In the beginning he suffered the same way as did the late friend Krishnaji Hovlaji Ara, who wrote nudes as well tore a canvass to insert a thick coconut yarn rope through it giving
a title Mahadeva, meaning gawd of Erect penis! No one dared to condemn it.They enjoyed the humour!
In today´s India Hindu Hooligans want the artists confine themselves to being sentimental.Where then goes Indian ancient tradition of creativity in literature and visuals carvings, sculptures or paintings on the walls of caves or precincts of temples. Would they dare to destroy Ellora, Konarak, khajuraho, Belur, Halebeed inheritance ?
Raja Ravi Varma, whom the Hindu Hooligans approve dressed early Bollywood actresses or Parel Tamasha theatre heroines.They were all given gawd´s and gawdesses´ identities. I remember Prof. Bendre explaining me the significance of Ravi Varma paintings as I invited him through friend Ara to see if the finds at the Ghatkopar Graphic Press ruins where indeed genuine Ravi Varma originals. He had then said it was Ravi Varma painting for stage and silver screen who created the identities for all Hindu deities.
Indian art today is getting recognition world wide. Indians have cash and pay for creativity. But such individuals with taste are not among the Hindu Hooligans, who want to take overIndia as the Pakistani jihadi terrorists want to sinkPakistan in theArabian sea close to Osama Bin Laden´s body.
Maqbool Fida Husain, (17 September, 1915 – 9 June, 2011) popularly known as MF, was an artist of Indian origin, passed away in exile in London. Husain, the artist who earned fame and controversy over his paintings, died in a Royal Brompton hospital in Londonat 2.30 am on Thursday, June 9, 2011 following a cardiac arrest..
According to Forbes magazine, he has been called the “Picasso of India”.In 1996 controversy arose over paintings originally painted in the 1970s which were interpreted as anti-Hindu. After legal cases and death threats in his home country, he was on a self imposed exile from 2006. In January, 2010, he was offered the citizenship of Qatar, which he accepted. As of now, he has not responded to summons from an Indian district court in Haridwar, his properties in India are therefore attached as per court orders and a bailable warrant is issued against him in the said court.
MF Husain first became well-known as an artist in the late 1940s. In 1947, he joined the Progressive Artists’ Group, founded by Francis Newton Souza. This was a clique of young artists who wished to break with the nationalist traditions established by the Bengal school of art and to encourage an Indian avant-garde, engaged at an international level. In 1952, his first solo exhibition was held at Zürich and over the next few years, his work was widely seen in Europe and the U.S. In 1955, he was awarded the prestigious Padma Shree prize by the Government of India.
In 1967, he made his first film, Through the Eyes of a Painter. It was shown at the Berlin Film Festival and won a Golden Bear.M. F. Husain was a special invitee along with Pablo Picasso at the Sao Paulo Biennial in 1971. He has been awarded the Padma Bhushan in 1973 and was nominated to the Rajya Sabha in 1986. He was awarded the Padma Vibhushan in 1991.
MF Husain went on to become the highest paid painter in India. His single canvases have fetched up to $2 million at a recent Christie’s auction. He has also worked (produced & directed) on few movies, including Gaja Gamini (with his muse Madhuri Dixit who was the subject of a series of his paintings which he signed Fida). The film was intended as a tribute to Ms. Dixit herself. In this film she can be seen portraying various forms and manifestations of womanhood including the muse of Kalidasa, the Mona Lisa, a rebel, and musical euphoria. He went on to make Meenaxi: A Tale of Three Cities (with Tabu). His autobiography is being made into a movie tentatively titled The Making of the Painter, starring Shreyas Talpade as the young Husain.
The Peabody Essex Museum (PEM) (USA, Massachusetts) showed a solo exhibition from 4 November 2006 to 3 June 2007. It exhibited Husain’s paintings inspired by the Hindu epic, Mahabharata. At the age of 92 Husain was to be given the prestigious Raja Ravi Varma award by the government of Kerala. The announcement led to controversy in Kerala and some cultural organisations campaigned against the granting of the award and petitioned the Kerala courts. Sabarimala spokesperson, Rahul Easwar, went to Kerala High Court and it granted an interim order to stay the granting of the award until the petition had been disposed of.
In early 2008, Husain’s Battle of Ganga and Jamuna: Mahabharata 12, a large diptych, from the Hindu epic, fetched $1.6 million, setting a world record at Christie’s South Asian Modern and Contemporary Art sale.
His name has also been included in the list of the 500 Most Influential Muslims in the World issued by the Royal Islamic Strategic Studies Center in Amman, Jordan.
Of late sale is showing a decline. In may artists MF Husain went unsold at the Sotheby’s auction, many feel that they may have run their course. Artist Pranava Prakash said, “Artists such as Husain and Raza sell because of their PR machinery, not because of their artistic merit.”
Husain died of heart attack on the 9th of June, 2011 at London, United Kingdom.
In the 1990s some of Husain’s works became controversial because of their portrayal of Hindu deities in the nude or in an allegedly sexual manner. The paintings in question were created in 1970, but did not become an issue until 1996, when they were printed in Vichar Mimansa, a Hindi monthly magazine, which published them in an article headlined “M.F. Husain: A Painter or Butcher”.
In response, eight criminal complaints were filed against Husain. In 2004, Delhi High Court dismissed these complaints of “promoting enmity between different groups … by painting Hindu goddesses — Durga and Sarswati, that was later compromised by Hindu’s. “.
In 1998 Husain’s house was attacked by Hindu groups like Bajrang Dal and art works were vandalised. The leadership of Shiv Sena endorsed the attack. Twenty-six Bajrang Dal activists were arrested by the police. Protests against Husain also led to the closure of an exhibition in London, England.
In February 2006, Husain was charged with hurting sentiments of people because of his nude portraits of Hindu gods and goddesses.
A series of cases were brought against him and a court case related to the alleged obscene depiction of Hindu goddesses in his paintings resulted in issuing a non-bailable warrant against Husain after he failed to respond to summons. There were also reportedly death threats. The artist left the country stating that “matters are so legally complicated that I have been advised not to return home”. Now living in Dubai and London, he continues to stay away from India, but has expressed a strong desire to return, despite fears that he may be arrested in connection with these cases.
A recent Supreme Court order has suspended an arrest warrant for Husain. The law ministry has examined half-a-dozen works by Husain and told the government that prosecutors would have a strong case against him if they sued him for deliberately hurting religious feelings.
In the February 6, 2006 issue, India Today, a national English weekly published an advertisement titled “Art For Mission Kashmir”. This advertisement contains a painting of Bharatmata (Mother India) as a nude woman posed across a map of India with the names of Indian States on various parts of her body. The exhibition was organised by Nafisa Ali of Action India (NGO) and Apparao Art Gallery. Organizations like Hindu Jagruti Samiti and Vishva Hindu Parishad (VHP) have protested persistently against Husain displaying the painting on the websites and even in exhibitions in north Europe. As a result, on February 7, 2006 Husain apologised and promised to withdraw the painting from an auction. The painting later appeared on Husain’s official website.
Husain’s film was pulled out of movie theatres a day after some Muslim organisations raised objections to one of the songs in it. The All-India Ulema Council complained that the Qawwali song Noor-un-Ala-Noor was blasphemous. It argued that the song contained words directly taken from the Quran. The council was supported by Muslim organisations like the Milli Council, All-India Muslim Council, Raza Academy, Jamiat-ul-Ulema-e-Hind and Jamat-e-Islami. Husain’s son stated that the words were a phrase referring to divine beauty that were being sung by the central character played by Tabu. He said there was no intention to offend. Following the wave of protests the enraged artist pulled off his movie from the theaters. The movie was well received by the critics, however, and went on to win various awards.
The artistic community has been supportive as well as critical. Krishan Khanna, one of Husain’s contemporaries, stated that “It’s not just Husain’s but the entire artist community’s lives which are at stake. Anybody and everybody can file a case against us now. Anyone can infringe upon our lives”. Others who have expressed anger at the “vicious campaigns” against Husain, include filmmaker Saeed Mirza, social activist Nafisa Ali, theatre personality M. K. Raina and a host of other artistes, art critics and art gallery owners. Salil Tripathi, writing in the International Herald Tribune, notes that Hindu goddesses have regularly been portrayed in the nude by Hindu artists. Tripathi asserts that, “”””It is hypocritical to place curbs on Husain’s artistic freedom. What’s more shameful is that a government that claims to be the secular alternative to Hindu nationalists is threatening to prosecute Husain. This does not do India proud; it adds to India’s disgrace.”””
