A label with the image of the hindu god Ganesha on Belgian beer-bottles shoot in the wrong throat with hindus.

The use of hindoegodheden for commercial purposes is offensive to believers, according to the Universal Society of Hinduism, a worldwide hindu says to represent

President Rajan Zed wants the East-Flemish brewery The Musketeers “very inappropriate” image of her beer Jack’s Precious IPA removes and demands apologies.

On the label has Ganesha a chef’s knife and a sausage in his hands and his head is the brouwerijlabel to see.

“Ganesha is deeply revered in hinduism and must be worshipped in temples or shrines in people’s homes, and not commercial greed, to be used to make beer to sell”, argues Zed. “Ganesha connecting to an alcoholic beverage is very disrespectful.”
