Breaking News! It’s official now. Renowned Painter, Maqbool Fida Husain is no longer an Indian citizen. According to his son Owais Husain, MF Hussain has accepted the offer of an honorary citizenship from Qatar. The 95-year-old Hussain has a number of lawsuits against him across the country and has been targeted by the Hindu right groups over the last few years. Hussain has been on a self-enforced exile in Dubai since 2006. He was accused of painting Hindu gods and goddesses in a defamatory way. Owais Hussain said that his father missed home in India terribly. He reportedly left Dubai for Qatar. He also added that he won’t blame his father for accepting Qatar nationality, as he had been a nomad all his life for various reasons. Hussain is in Qatar now - his new home. He has not issued any statement in this regard so far. It is not immediately known whether the government is trying to bring him back to India or not, although it wanted him to come back to his homeland.
