Mumbai (Maharashtra): An advertisement was inserted in a daily newspaper ‘Economic Times’ by an eveninger ‘Mumbai Mirror’ about a competition to play ‘Housie’ game. This advertisement showed two Hindu ascetics doing penance in a very weird poses. Mr. Satish Kocharekar, a member of HJS called up the office of the eveninger when he saw the advertisement and asked for an explanation from Mr. Abhishek, the concerned official and made a demand to immediately withdraw the advertisement. Mr. Abhishek assured him that he would discuss the matter with his eniors and the advertisement would not be published in future. (Congratulations to Mr. Satish Kocharekar for promptly contacting the concerned person and taking him to task resulting in withdrawal of the objectionable advertisement. When every devout Hindu becomes alert towards matters related to Dharma like someone ridiculing his objects of worship, it will put some restraints on the heretics. – Editor)
