The Indian Government should tell all major firms that while promoting their products they should not use Idols, pictures, etc. of Hindu Deities that result in their denigration or trivialization. Hindus too should be alert to this growing trend.
Nevada (USA) – Upset Hindus are urging Stockholm (Sweden) based clothing brand ‘Hoodie Lab’ for the immediate withdrawal of shorts carrying images of Deity Ganesh, calling it highly inappropriate.
In a statement in Nevada (USA), Hindu representative Mr. Rajan Zed said that Shri Ganesh is highly revered in Hindu Dharma and is meant to be worshipped in temples or home shrines and not to adorn one’s thighs, hips, groin, buttocks, genitals and pelvis. Inappropriate usage of Hindu Deities hurts the devotees.
Mr. Zed also urged ‘Hoodie Lab’ and its CEO to offer a formal apology, besides withdrawing ‘Ganesh Shorts’.
Protest against anti-National & anti-Dharma incidents with restraint !
The main objective in protesting against anti-Hindu elements is to bring about an ideological change in them. Therefore, any protest should be at the ideological level on the strength of relevant theoretical points. Here, the expansive perspective should be to bring the erring individual onto the right path by pointing out his mistake.
