We understand your situation and are respectful of your culture (Hindu). I assure you that a few years back we made serious changes to the label so as to mitigate this issue. The new art is basically intended to be an elephant and not that of your Hindu god.

We changed the label several years ago. You prodded me to look on our web page and I discovered that our web master when told to put up the new label has put up our old label. I contacted him to make the change but he hasn’t responded to me yet. Thank you for pointing out our error. Now I know why we got so many e-mails. We obviously don’t look too closely to our web site. Again thank you.

Your statement will not fall upon deaf ears my friend.

All The Best,

My name is Pravin Bhosale and I am Hindu from India and staying in PA.
I saw your product of Indica which has Shri GaneshJi, our God’s drunk picture.
Due to above picture our feelings are really hurt and we are really sad to know if has been done by you.
Why do you need to hurt feelings of other religion? Can you do that for Jesus, if yes please do it and remove Shri Ganeshji picture.
We protest against it and take legal action if you do not remove picture from product. Thanks.

Details of defamation of Lord Ganesha

Lord Ganesha on beer bottle

Lord Ganesha on beer bottle

A loyal reader of greatandhra.com shared a blasphemous incident with us through mail and we have written and uploaded that news yesterday. And that is about Lord Ganesh’s picture on beer bottles made by one of the US breweries.

Ref: Greatandhra.com

Countless mails have inundated the mail box of greatandhra.com admin with sharing of anguish by hundreds of readers for this blasphemous act of that breweries company. They stated that they have contacted that Lost Coast Brewery with a complaint and also forwarded the response mails from that company. All the forwarded mails have got the same ‘copy-paste’ response from Lost Coast GM/Sales. Here is that:

“Your words, thoughts and beliefs are part of a culture that I personally respect and believe that the owner group of the brewery share with me. Please note that I will act to evaluate this issue and meet directly with the owner group towards mitigating your concerns. You have contacted the correct person for your concerns and they have not fallen upon deaf ears. Best Regards, Harmony and Peace.

It is good that many are fighting with that company to see the bottles removed from stalls immediately. The follow up on this incident requires continuous force and Hindu community should see that such blasphemy will not repeat again. And also ensure that those beer bottles are not in market with Lord Ganesh or any other divine picture of Hindu religion. Some suggested to make this news reach Shivasena, RSS and VHP as well. And we wish our readers do that as the voice of thousands will be louder than that of one.
