The famous Indian Contemporary painter MF Husain passes away in London
MF Husain, India's best known contemporary painter, has died in London.At 95, he was active and had lots of painting left in him.
Husain had been in exile since 2006, when he was attacked by rightist groups angry with his portrayal of Hindu deities. Last year, he was offered Qatari citizenship. But his heart remained in India, and in interviews, spoke fondly of what this country meant to him.
