Hussain stops Meenaxi screening throughout India

M.F.Hussain has given out immediate orders and asked his only distributor Yash Chopra to stop the screening of his recent film Meenaxi throughout the country. The problem erupted when the All-India Ulema Council demanded an immediate ban on the current chartbuster qawalli track Noor-un-ala-noor from Hussain’s film penned by Hussain himself. The council secretary grudged that the phrase Noor-un-ala-noor meaning ‘light and more light’ is used in the holy Quran to praise the Prophet Mohammed. But Hussain has used the phrase to illustrate the beauty of women in his film, which has hurt the religious sentiments of the community. They had even filed a complaint with the Mumbai police and had asked them to take stringent action failing which they will protest against the song and the film. Hussain who seems to be quite disturbed by all this claimed that since he didn’t make the artistic film to earn moolah, he has withdrawn it from the cinema halls. My reaction to something like this is that I withdraw the film, is all what Hussain has to say.
