    • In line with the RSS, the Shiv Sena has said that MF Husain, who is all set to adopt Qatar’s nationality, can return to India, provided he seeks an apology from the Hindus.
    • However, Hindu Janjagruti Samiti (HJS), which was apparently behind Husain’s decision to leave India in 2006, has demanded that he should be arrested and brought back to appear before the court in the cases filed against him.
    • HJS spokesperson Ramesh Shinde said they will not accept any apology from Husain. “Apology will not serve any purpose. He has committed a crime and he has to be punished. The government should arrest him and bring him back to complete the court cases pending against him,” he said.

      The Samiti launched a campaign against Husain since 1996, when his paintings of nude deities created a controversy.
