Hindus upset with Cavill comparing 'Superman' with Hindu gods
Hindus are upset with British actor Henry Cavill, who plays Superman in currently running superhero film 'Man of Steel', for reportedly comparing 'Superman' with Hindu gods.

Hindu statesman Rajan Zed, in a statement in Nevada (USA) today, said that comparing gods with a human created comic book fictional character was trivialization of all-powerful God whom we owed our existence. ‘Superman’ at the most was a cultural icon, while God produced and sustained the world and was the source of being and life, Zed argued.

We offered prayers to our deities and worshipped them. It was insensitive for Cavill to drag them in comparison with an earthly character, thus hurting the feelings of the devotees, Zed, who is President of Universal Society of Hinduism, added.

Zed has, in the past too, highlighted such issues of religious importance. Recently, he had asked Hollywood actress and singer Selena Gomez to apologise for wearing a 'bhindi' during one of the dance performances.
