Denigration of Shri Ganesh by 'Eshe Skate Boards' : Complaint lodged by HJS with ‘Cyber Crime’

Mumbai : ‘Eshe Skate Boards’ a Company manufacturing boards used for skiing and ‘T shirts’ from New Zealand was involved in desecration of Sri Ganesha. The above news was published by ‘Sanatan Prabhat’ in its issue dated 5th October. Thereafter, few devout Hindus sent e-mails to the above company protesting against such desecration and demanding prevention of the same. The Company has, however, given insolent replies dismissing demand made by devout Hindus. (People from various countries including the most developed country like USA are following Hindu Dharma although they advocate materialism because they have realized the importance of Hindu culture. ‘Eshe Skate Boards’ has no right to hurt religious sentiments of anyone. If they do not understand the matter with amiability, Hindus should make them understand in lawful manner ! – Editor SP)
Mr. Shivaji Vatkar, the district coordinator of Hindu Janajagruti Samiti (HJS) for Mumbai, Thane and Raigad has written a letter to the said Company demanding to stop such desecrating advertisements and stop manufacture of such products, rendering apology to all Hindus. The Company is manufacturing skate boards on which ‘Religion is garbage’ is written with pictures of Shri Ganapati smoking a hookah, Prophet Mohammad with bombs in His turban and on stomach, decomposing Moses (Jews’ Dharma-Guru) and ‘Randy Gandhi’ engaged in indecent act are printed. It is mentioned in the letter that such pictures have severely hurt national and religious sentiments of all Indians. It has been further mentioned in the protest letter that ‘Such acts can have adverse effect on relations between India and New Zealand, the two friendly nations including trade between these two countries. The Company may be owned by intellectuals and atheists but it has crossed all limits of culture and decency by committing such sin.’

The Company has taken note of HJS letter and informed them, ‘We like Indian culture; they are vegetarians. We, however, promote materialism going out of the rut; as such we will neither withdraw this advertisement nor stop production. This is our innovative style and such controversy is, in fact, of our benefit, it is stated in the letter shamelessly.

Mr. Vatkar has, therefore, registered a complaint with ‘Advertising Standard Complaint Board’, New Zealand which has informed Mr. Vatkar of taking necessary action while acknowledging receipt of the complaint. Mr. Vatkar has also lodged a complaint with the senior Police Inspector, ‘Cyber Crime Cell’ and demanded to block the links of the said Company’s website. The concerned department has promised to soon take necessary action. As the matter is sensitive from the viewpoint of patriots, similar complaint is also going to be lodged with Foreign/ External Affairs Ministry and Consulates.

The pictures have been posted on and on link as and their posters have also been displayed in the local markets.
