Urban Outfitters’ Lord Ganesh Duvet Cover Upsets Hindus
Hindu critics say Urban Outfitters new duvet cover featuring Lord Ganesh is insensitive to their faith and have asked that the item be pulled. The cover, available online for $129-$169, depicts the elephant-head Hindu deity who symbolizes wisdom. Criticism of the retailer comes barely a week after Wal-Mart, Amazon.com and Sears came under fire for selling a commemorative poster featuring a photo from the Dachau concentration camp's main gate. Rajan Zed, president of Universal Society of Hinduism, has asked Urban Outfitters to take the duvet cover off the market.
