MF Husain Conferred Citizenship by Qatar: Report

Eminent Indian artist MF Husain, who has been in self-imposed exile since 2006, has been conferred Qatar nationality, reported The Hindu.

Report said that the artist was ‘honoured by Qatar nationality’ but deeply saddened by his enforced exile and the need to forgo the citizenship of the land of his birth which he has lovingly and secularly celebrated in his art covering a period of over seven decades.

It may be mentioned that India law doesn’t allow dual citizenship, so Husain will have to quit his Indian passport if he decides to accept Qatar citizenship.

Report also pointed out that Husain didn’t apply for Qatar nationality but it was conferred up on himat the instance of the modernising emirate’s ruling family.

The artist has been living in Dubai since the hate campaign against him started in India in 2006.
