Lord Krushna is the only absolute incarnation and he also gave us knowledge through 'Geeta'. Goddess Durga is considered as Mother of the Universe. So how we Hindus can tolerate such horrible denigration of our beloved Hindu Deities? Hindus must force Carlos Ramos to apologise to all Hindus for hurting their sentiments & he should also remove denigratory pictures from his exhibition. Hindus must protest against Carlos Ramos.

Dear Mr.Carlos Ramos,
Repeat to Chief of Coreyhelford Gallery.
Hindu Janajagruti Samiti is an NGO engaged in Nation building, educating people about Dharma & Religious practices , awakening & uniting Hindus worldover. For further details and worldwide operation of Samiti please visit website www.hindujagruti.org
It is understood that an Exhibition is going to be organized at Coreyhel art Gallery on the subject 'India'.We were happy to note that Indian culture and morals will be spread all over for the benefit of the Society. However we were shocked and surprised to note that denigrating pictures/paintings being planned to exhibited during this time.After seeing the pictures we were pained and religious feelings were hurt. Please note that hurting religious feelings is an serious and punishable offence.
As per upcoming edition of Newsweek 65% of Americans ( according to a 2008 PEW Forum survey ) were shifting to the Hindu belief that there are many paths to God. This is because of rich Indian tradition, culture and spiritual guidance. God's are meant for worshiping so as to achieve the aim of life. God's idol or picture is associated with its,sound,word,touch,form,taste,smell and energy. Thus a correct and appropriate picture of God will give good vibrations and pleased to be blessed . However you have distorted and deformed Lord Krishna and Goddess Durga. This is highly objectionable and hurting feelings of crores of worshipers allover world. Also you are adding sin to your destiny.
We hope that you will not dare to draw and exhibit distored picture Jesus or Mohammad Paigambar like Denmark Cartoonist.
In view of above and on behalf of Hindu Janajagruti Samiti you are requested to stop planning of denigrated pictures of Hindu deities and cooperate.
Please acknowledge the receipt and action being taken so as to get blessings.

Subject: This is related to your painting of Lord Shri Krishna and Shri Durga
Dear Mr.Carlos Ramos,
This is with respect to your paintings of hindu god Shri Krishna and Shri Durga devi. These painting are nothing but denigration of Hindu god Shri Krushna and Shri Durga ma! Shri krishna has been painted in lady form. Also Shri durga has been painted in wrong form. It is really hurting our religious feelings.
We all should respect all the religions. There is very respected position to God in our mind. We pray God with that divine respect. In Hindu dharma,every god has its own form. It should be painted in that way, manner only. So how you have dare to painted in wrong way without studying about Hindu religion and about Shri Durga and Shri Krushna???. Your foolish and psycho activity is creating disrespect about Hindu religion, country, and gods. I know you are not Indian but you don't have any rights to do like that.
If your subject is 'India/Bharat' in the exhibition at Corey Helford, as in india there are many religions so you create any Muslim or Christian Prophet and publish the painting with your same experiment. We are sure you will not do this because you know the result! Somebody will come to you and give you punishment which will be much more than what “sin” you have committed! And also as per advice of advocate “hurting the religious feeling of anybody” is crime as per Indian Panel Code 295 (A).
Hope you can understand from this and will remove all the paintings which insult Lord Shri Krishna and Shri Durga devi from the exhibition at Corey Helford. And also in future you should never craete the hindu lord paintings without studying them thoroughly.

Subject: Denigration of godess shri.Durgadevi & shri. Krishna
Mr. Karlos Ramos,
It is very disappointing & disgusting that you have drawn dirty pictures of our religious feelings.
As per the Indian Pinal Code 295 (A), “hurting the religious feeling of anybody” is crime.
I hope there must be a law in US also to respect feeling of any established religious society & culture.
You are requested to destroy these paintings & apologize to the concerned as you have deeply hurted feelings of peace loving human beings on the earth.
If you are doing this purposefully for the sake of money, then you would have also drawn similar paintings of ..Mother Mary & Jesus Christ…Mohammad Paigambar..etc..etc
I hope you would respond for the maintaining peace & harmony in the world.

Subject: Your Denigration of Lord Krushna and Goddess Durga
Dear Mr. Carlos Ramos,
I am writing to you to express my anger and outrage over your denigrating pictures of Lord Krushna and Goddess Durga. Your act is an affront to all Hindus worldwide and i urge you to remove these denigratory pictures from your exhibition.
Hurting the sentiments of a more than a billion people is a serious and punishable act and it is the greatness of Hinduism that we are protesting nobly.
Your act is a testament to your ignorance about Hinduism and i strongly suggest that you reach out and learn about the way of life that we call Hinduism.
Please desist from such heinous and abominable acts in the future and do the right thing by removing these pictures and apologising to all peace loving Hindus worldwide.
