A Pharr (Texas) based athletic clothing company “Miami Fitwear” was also urged for immediate withdrawal of leggings carrying images of Lord Ganesha.

The protest spearhead by Rajan Zed, President of Universal Society of Hinduism and backed by a number of other organizations including NRI Press Club Chicago made it a point that Lord Ganesh leggings were highly disgusting and disrespectful.

They welcomed the reports that the firm has taken off the leggings from website but are still waiting for a formal apology from Flow Yoga Wear and its CEO,
Hinduism was the oldest and third largest religion of the world with about 1.1 billion adherents and a rich philosophical thought and it should not be taken frivolously. Symbols of any faith, larger or smaller, should not be mishandled. Lord Ganesha is worshipped as god of wisdom and remover of obstacles and is invoked before the beginning of any major undertaking, Rajan maintained.
