A US company has provoked the wrath of the world's
Hindus by making toilet seats featuring images of their
gods.

The Sacred Seat Collection features toilet seats with
the images of Hindu deities Ganesh and Kali,
marketed by a company in Seattle.

India's ruling Bharatiya Janata Party describes the
seats as an "abominable act" and is calling on Hindus
to declare the seats as "a contemptible thing to be
strongly condemned by all".

Pyarelal Khandelwal, vice-president of the party, says
the company is deliberatly denigrating Hindu gods.

The company should be aware that Ganesh and Kali
are held sacred by Hindus the world over, says the
India Express.

Mr Khandelwal said: "What could be the motive? Is it to
express their intolerance for religion different from their
own? Or do they hope to do bumper business by raking
up a controversy with their product?"

The party has formally asked the US government to
keep in check religious intolerance.

It has also pointed out that the United Nations General
Assembly has recently adopted a resolution supporting
the equality of all religions.

This is really very bad.

I was just able to see the pictures. When I got this posting it was not looking offending to me, but after looking at pictures it really hurts.

Thanks aksuman.

I am happy to know that you reacted immediately on that. I wish others will also follow the same thing.

Angry Mr Simple Human

You were so offended by Rakhwalas language then why are you
using the same type of language on this forum?!.There are others who have been offended by that language but no one resorted to the same kind of filthy language as you have started to!.
