Zed further said that we needed to be more sensitive about the feelings of "others". He urged the creative-director/producer Paula Sjunneson (The Swedish Housewife) to remove the scenes involving Hindu goddesses from "House of Thee UnHoly", which is termed as "sexually-charged psychedelia" and features “Druids, Vikings, Hindu goddesses, sex, drugs, rock 'n' roll".
Hinduism was the oldest and third largest religion of the world with about one billion adherents and a rich philosophical thought and it should not be taken lightly. Symbols of any faith, larger or smaller, should not be mishandled, Zed argued.
Hindus were for free artistic expression and speech as much as anybody else if not more. But faith was something sacred and attempts at trivializing it hurt the followers, Rajan Zed added.
There are about three million Hindus in USA and moksh (liberation) is the ultimate goal of Hinduism. Lakshmi, Durga, Saraswati, Kali and Parvati are some of the well known Hindu goddesses.
