    Ban on Art works of eminent artists is a heinous act. Art has no religion nor language barriers. In one way I consider such Art works as a National property.

    One should avoid hate-work in the name of artwork. To live in a society respectfully one should learn the norms and ethics. An eminent artist/writer has no licence to insult others feelings. One's work is reflection of his mind.

    Artist's works and thoughts are sans prejudice and bias. They are universal  Ban on such immortal works is a heinous act and exhibits narrow mindedness.

    The more we advance the  more intolerant we are becoming. The state is weak or conniving and for the sake of votes fringe elements are being given a free hand. It is sad but the stark reality of today's cultural and political environment. The more hate one spreads the more effective he becomes.

    Well said. Our advancement is going forward and our tolerance is going backward. A sorry state of affairs.

    I don't support artwork that hurts religious sentiments especially when the creator of such work belongs to a different religion. In the name of freedom for expression they can't target other religion. In my opinion it is immoral. Hussain's so called art work on Hindu goddesses was in poor taste especially since there is no basis for it..what was he trying to express through that? On the other hand Dan Brown's book ,The Da Vincci code sure is controversial but done on a basis of a lot of research and he has written it showing two different view points, two different schools of thought..so I would not mind reading something like it.In other words art work or writing is acceptable if there is some basis or logic behind it. Otherwise it is hate-work indeed.

    Simply because MF Hussain belongs to another religion ? OK , I agree, Ravi Varma ? He was a Hindu. But he was subjecedd to severe criticism by Hindus. Why ? Because his fault was depicting Hindu Gods  is treated as an imitation of western culture.

    Same was the case of Satanic Verses or Sulman Rushdie and Lajja by Taslima Nasreen. It takes two palms to clap if you love us we will love you too but if you target us be prepared to take some of it.

    @ Lopamudra should stop visiting many of our ancient temples including khajurao because of the nudity exhibited in the statues all round the structures. Just as beauty lies in the eye of the beholder so does hate lie in the same eyes. Hussain's misfortune was that he was a Muslim who believed Indians were secular.

    The two can not be compared. Raja Ravi Verma's art is aesthetic without any obscenity.
