A global online retail company based in London was discovered to be selling leggings which portrayed an image of Hindu Deity Lord Ganesha. The image has been removed after it was called ‘highly inappropriate’.
The “Ganesha Leggings”, was sold for £15 at britishleggings.co.uk.
Rajan Zed, a Hindu statesman, protested to remove the image from the leggings and thanked the British Leggings for understanding the beliefs and concerns of the Hindu community, who thought the image of Lord Ganesha on such a product was insensitive.
Zed stated that the Lord Ganesha was highly revered in Hinduism and should be worshipped in temples or home shrines and not to adorn one’s legs.
He also said that such trivialisation of Hindu deities was disturbing to the Hindus all over the world.
In Hinduism, Lord Ganesha is worshipped as the god of wisdom and remover of obstacles.
