Kuala Lumpur, Feb 12 (ANI): A number of Indian religious organisations in Malaysia have expressed outrage over the sale of slippers bearing impressions of a Hindu deity.
The Star quoted the Malaysia Hindu Sangam (MHS) President R.S. Mohan Shan as saying that the act selling slippers with deity impressions in Chow Kit, Kuala Lumpur has shown disrespect towards the Hindu religion.
Sri Maha Mariamman Temple President R. Nadarajah has expressed shock at the incident and added that slippers must be immediately withdrawn from the market.
The country had earlier experienced a number of complaints after a deity’s picture was printed on T-shirts, compact discs and playing cards. (ANI)
