He also urged Kunkle to publicly apologize to disturbed Hindus and to remove it from her website and not put it for public displays in the future. Equating Kardashian with god and showing her as divine was simply not acceptable.
Zed argued that 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. No faith, larger or smaller, should be ridiculed at; Zed said and added that inappropriate use of Hinduism concepts and symbols was not okay.
The Hindu religious leader stated that Hindus welcomed artists to immerse in Hinduism but taking it seriously and respectfully and not just for improper showing of Hindu symbols and concepts to advance their selfish agenda. Casual flirting sometimes resulted in pillaging serious spiritual doctrines and revered symbols. Hindus were for free speech as much as anybody else if not more. But faith was something sacred and attempts at belittling it hurt the devotees. Artists should be more sensitive while handling faith related subjects, Zed pointed out.
Kunkle recently held a public art exhibition of graphic Photoshop collages titled "The Passion of Kim Kardashian" at Palisades in Brooklyn, New York, created under her Kim Kardashian project.
