Famous artist MF Hussain passes away

LONDON: Renowned Indian painter Maqbool Fida Hussain passed away in the early hours of today in London at the age of 95.

According to reports, he died at the Royal Brompton Hospital in London. He had been suffering from age-related ailments for some time and had been in hospital for the last two days. He was being treated for fluid in the lungs and breathing difficulties.

His sons and daughter were with him when the end came, the sources said.

Hussain had been living in self-imposed exile in Dubai and London since 2006 after coming under attack from fundamentalists at home for his paintings of Hindu deities. Early last year, Qatar conferred its nationality on him.
