Defaming Hinduism is insulting God sign now

Reading the following article shows how low can companies go to boost their sales. Time and again, religious sentiments of the Hindu community have been hurt by the actions of many companies.

Hindus make up almost one-sixth of the world population, but the ignorance and mis-information about the Hindu faith that exists in the world is very disturbing.

Its an appeal not just to the Sunday Observer, the India Pale Ales, and the advertisement company involved in this matter, but also to the companies who have done such acts in the past to stop insulting Hindu spirituality. We are as human as you are, and the insults hurt our feelings as much it hurt yours.

One of our most respected Scriptures of our faith, the Rig Veda, states "The whole creation is one big family", and we treat every human with full respect and deserve the same from our brothers and sisters who follow other faiths, and brothers/sisters who are atheists, in return.

ARTICLE:
"NRIs up in arms against derogatory caricature of Lord Ganesha
A section of Non-Resident Indians in the United Kingdom are up in arms against the use of the image of Lord Ganesha in an advertisement for beers.
The objectionable photograph under the title Indian Summer food and drink, depicted in the Sunday Observer on Sunday, shows Lord Ganesh carrying a glass of pale ale in one hand and displaying the initials IPA (beer called India Pale Ales) in another.

The write up under the image said - As everyone who has stepped inside a pub knows, the hunger created by a few pints can be extinguished only by a meal from the Indian sub-continent.

A spokesman of the Leicester-based Hindu community said the advertisement was in bad taste and affected the religious feelings of Hindus."

    We can safely conclude that Hinduism, as a religion, does not satisfy human nature. It is based on inequality, hatred of others and the oppression of the weak. Empty claims such as urine drinking and sun worship further make this an unsound religion. Is t
