It seems that actor Jim Carrey and NBC are at the receiving end from Jews and the Hindus for depicting the goddess of Hindus – Ganesha in bad taste.
The Jews are supporting the Hindus for showing Lord Ganesha in a bad taste on NBC’s Saturday Night Live (SNL). Buzz is doing the rounds that the Hindus and the Jews have now demanded an apology from Carrey and NBC as they have hurt the religious sentiments. On NBC’s SNL “The Wrath of Ganesh” on January 8, Jim Carrey and Kenan Thomson sprung in action while making sarcastic comments regarding Lord Ganesh and his trunk.
Rabbi Elizabeth W Beyer, Jewish leader in Nevada (USA), demanded a withdrawal of the, ‘The Wrath of Ganesh’ from the NBC website and added that those who are involved in showing the God of the Hindus in such a manner should apologize.Rabbi further added that they will co-operate with the initiative taken by Hindu leader Rajan Zed to sensitize people in the showbiz industry regarding the sentiments of various religions.
Swami Pooja Saraswati, spiritual leader, found the skit to be obnoxious and remarked that the NBC should be condemned for such acts. Depiction of Lord Ganesh has made the one billion Hindus extremely angry and Zed, who is President of Universal Society of Hinduism, wants the NBC to remove all content and links from its website.
