INDIANAPOLIS (WEHT) – The Universal Society of Hinduism is urging an Indianapolis t-shirt company to withdraw some products which they feel denigrate and trivialize sacred Hindu symbols and concepts.
Rajan Zed, President of the Universal Society of Hinduism asked for a formal apology in regards to a t-shirt that reads, “Namaste Mother F#$%+@.”
Zed said Hindus are for free artistic expression and speech, but it finds the trivializing of their faith to be hurtful.
The company which sold the merchandise is called Zorestina.
The merchandise included several Hindu symbols and concepts, such as “Om,” “Namaste,” and other religious symbols.
