Appeal to devout Hindus:

Namaste, dear supporter of Hinduism.

We have received complaints from several Hindus about the inclusion of the Late M.F. Husain’s paintings at Sotheby’s 8th June auction in London. Accordingly, one of our volunteers promptly wrote to the organizers, bringing to their attention the anti Hindu nature of the Late Husain, who had blatantly trampled upon the religious sensitivities of millions of Hindus by drawing many anti Hindu paintings denigrating Hindus’ revered Deities during his career. (Please see below the email of protest to the organizers, sent by this alert supporter of Hinduism.) However, there has been no response from Sotheby’s.

You can learn more about the late Husain’s paintings at:
