‘Did India fail MF Husain?’ that was the title of the program on NDTV on June 9 evening, the day India’s biggest pervert died. Throughout the day his friends, admirers and media personalities mourned his death, recalled their moments with him. I have sympathies for his family and friends and would not have considered doing this post if the media hadn’t taken it to another level by making it appear as if Bharat Maa had failed him. Despite the controversies and his crimes I would have thought it better to let the person have his dignity in death. But even in his death the media chooses to insult the dignity of the nation, the motherland.
Here is a tag line from the program and the video at NDTV : “My heart will always be in India...it is my beloved land," he said in an interview to NDTV in March last year. Did India let him down”? Did India let him down? Here is a tweet from Rahul Bose, the man who is the voice of conscience in many ways for the media: “Hussain passes away. we hang our heads partly in grief & partly in shame for not being able to let him spend his last days in this country”.
Alright, so this pervert loved Bharat Maa so much that he imagined and painted her in the nude. What the hell is that? Some kind of Oedipus complex? I am quite certain that all those Hindu goddesses, Lakshmi, Saraswati, Parvati and Durga are in deep mourning over this asshole. It is unlikely that any other painter would now paint them in the nude and rejoice his freedom of expression.
A previous post of mine “Shashi Tharoor: The new ‘happy-tongue’ hypocrite - Secularism means “don’t offend muslims” from March 2010 is suddenly back among popular posts. That post clearly defines and explains the approach of progressive and secular media towards freedom of speech and expression. You have the freedom to abuse the sentiments of a vast majority of Hindus in this country. Hindus respect their soil and their nation as ‘Bharat Maa’ but those who abuse the country are exercising their freedom of speech rights. Shashi Tharoor’s arguments and stand in the post I have mentioned best exemplify the stand of those in the media, the art fraternity, the Congress and similar parties and some in Bollywood. In his debate with Christopher Hitchens that I’ve referred to in this post, Hitchens chewed Tharoor’s balls off for his spurious arguments and theories. NDTV falls into the Tharoor category where defining freedom of expression is concerned. People haven’t forgotten the Barkha Dutt-Chetanya Kunte episode of ‘shoddy journalism’ after the 26/11 attacks.
In another previous post the man whines that India rejected him. Another post from February 2010 explains NDTV and Barkha Dutt’s persuasions, when she called it ‘A national shame’ when this pervert took up Qatari citizenship. So where Husain is concerned, NDTV’s stand is that India should be ashamed. Sorry, India is ashamed of Husain and India is ashamed of NDTV.
One can expect any average person to remember JFK’s famous line ‘Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country’. In the opinion of those who run NDTV it should be the other way around. So the question if India has failed Hussain insults not only Bharat Maa but all those who hold her in deep respect and love. I have already renamed them End-ItTV and as far as their journalistic credentials go, they have already wound up.
In his own words Husain exiled himself to escape over 900 cases filed against him. He was a fugitive and a coward. Even if the media wish to bestow upon him some kind of martyrdom, ordinary people think a bit differently.
When one dies his sins and debts are forgiven. With Husain, hopefully the EVIL inside him has died. One’s deepest desire in life would be to be buried or cremated in one’s motherland. Mother India is fortunate to be free from the burden of absorbing Husain in her soil and soul. The dead should be mourned, but Evil Dead is not such a bad thing either.
