A company has removed legging carrying image of Hindu deity Lord Ganesha which was called 'highly inappropriate'.

“Ganesha Leggings”, was earlier selling for £15 at britishleggings.co.uk.

Hindu statesman Rajan Zed, who is said to have spearheaded the protest thanked British Leggings for understanding the concerns of Hindu community which thought image of Lord Ganesha on such a product was insensitive.

Zed had said that Lord Ganesha was highly revered in Hinduism and was meant to be worshipped in temples or home shrines and not to adorn one’s legs.

Zed had stated that such trivialization of Hindu deities was disturbing to the Hindus world over.

In Hinduism, Lord Ganesha is worshipped as god of wisdom and remover of obstacles and is invoked before the beginning of any major undertaking.
