Muneeza Naqvi




“Husain had lived in Dubai since 2006 after receiving death threats from  Hindu hard-liners in India for a nude painting of a woman shaped like India’s map, often described as Mother India in popular arts…”


“Husain was considered a master of color and lines , with works inspired by Hindu temple art and Cubism.”


“In 2008, India’s Supreme Court judges described Mother India as a work of art and cleared him of the charge of causing offence to Hindus…”

“He wanted to return to India and was convinced that he would at some point.”
