Husain exile to end? UPA has a plan - General |

  • tags: no_tag

    • According to sources, Husain's self-imposed exile may come to an end if a plan being worked out by the UPA succeeds. CNN-IBN has learnt that the Government is making its first move to try and come to the rescue of Hussain.

      Home Ministry sources have confirmed that cases filled across the country against Husain should be expedited. This will enable the Government to work out a focussed strategy to bring Husain back.
    • In 2007, the Supreme Court had clubbed the cases against Husain from Gujarat and many other states in the country. Last year, the Delhi High Court gave Husain a clean chit calling his controversial paintings an expression of creativity.
    • In its second stint, the UPA wants to give out the message that it stands for tolerance and acceptance of all kinds of stands. The fatwa issued against Husain and his subsequent exile remains one of the biggest controversies. A resolution of this controversy will certainly go as a feather in the Home Minister's cap.
