Distinguished Hindu statesman Rajan Zed, in a statement in Nevada (USA) today, said that RAFW organizers should show responsibility and consideration toward the hurt worldwide Hindu community and come out with a public apology. In future, they should be more careful about what went on in the fashion show.

Inappropriate usage of Hindu deities and concepts for commercial or other agenda was not okay as it hurt the devotees. Symbols of any faith, larger or smaller, should not be mishandled, Zed, who is President of Universal Society of Hinduism, added.
