Mangaluru, June 12: Hindu god ‘Narasimha’s picture portrayed in the TB control poster is a big blunder. Karnataka government has hurted the sentiments of Hindus. These posters should be withdrawn, said Pramod Muthalik, Chief of Shri Ram Sena.
Addressing the press meet at Aryasamaj Bhavan here on Thursday June 11th, Pramod Muthalik said, Hindu god ‘Narasimha’s picture has been portrayed in the TB control poster by the state government. As per article 295 of the constitution, nobody has the right to insult another faith. This is a blunder.
He said, the health department has committed a mistake by using only the Hindu god. Why only Hindu god has been used? Why not other communities? Sentiments of Hindus have been hurted by this. Such kind of attitude is not good. Our country is secular, but why only Hindu gods have been targeted? This is because the Hindu community is silent.
He said, attack on Hindu community, religious scriptures, gods and saints have been continuing. He demanded the government to immediately withdraw the poster used to create awareness about TB.
