New Delhi: Noted painter M F Husain on Tuesday got a major relief from the Supreme Court which refused to initiate of criminal proceedings against him for allegedly hurting public sentiments through some of his paintings that were dubbed as obscene.
"There are many such pictures, paintings and sculptures and some of them are in temples also," a Bench headed by Chief Justice K G Balakrishnan said, dismissing one such petition.
The Bench, also comprising Justices P Sathasivam and J M Panchal, was not impressed with the argument that Hussain was taking advantage of his age and reputation to get away with the law by painting obscene pictures.
One such creation of the painter, titled Bharat Mata, was brought before the apex court for its scrutiny.
Maharashtra-based Dwaipayan Venkateshacharya Varkhedkar had challenged a Delhi High Court verdict quashing the criminal proceedings initiated against the eminent painter in Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh and Gujarat
