Meat Eating Ganesha: Yay or Nay?
Would a meat eating Ganesha irk you?
An Australian Lamb ad might be taken down from the internet for having enraged Hindu sentiments. The ad depicts Gods of various religions and some fictional figures sharing a Lamb meal. One of the Gods in the ad is Lord Ganesha, addressed as the ‘Elephant in the room’. Jesus Christ, Buddha, Zeus, Aphrodite, Moses and even Thor are shown in the ad as well.
The Hindu community in Australia has expressed disapproval over the ad by Meat & Livestock Australia, as part of its 'You Never Lamb Alone' campaign.
The MLA ads are known to be tongue-and-cheek and have often invited praise and criticism on social media. As far as this ad goes, it has been referred to the Advertising Standards Bureau.
Do you think it should be taken down?
