Panaji, Nov 23: A Hindu right-wing organisation in Goa has opposed the film section which pays tribute to painter M F Husain at the International Film Festival of India.

The Hindu Janajagruti Samiti (HJS) has urged the organisers not to pay tribute to Hussain as the samiti had sued the painter over his controversial paintings.

The Film festival is starting from Nov 23 and is scheduled to show a documentary 'Through The Eyes of the Painter,' which was directed by Hussain.

Rajashree Gadekar, HJS delegation met Manoj Srivastava, the chief executive Officer of the Entertainment Society of Goa (ESG) on Nov 22 and asked him to withdraw the tribute. Hindu Janajagruti Samiti has warned that if IFFI goes with their plans, the samiti would stage an agitation.
