Dear Sir,

Hindu Janajagruti Samiti is a registered NGO in India doing social, Hindu Dharma related and national welfare work. The Samiti is also active throughout the world, educating people about Hindu Dharma in a scientific way, campaigning against malpractices done as Hindu Dharma related practices and solving problems related to misrepresentation of Hindu Dharma. For further details please visit our website

We had received complaints against sale of mouse pad having pictures of Shrikrushna & Arjun on your website causing denigration of Hindu deities and Hinduism. (Reference:

As per Dharmashastra and spiritual science, the word, touch, form, taste, fragrance and the energy associated with them coexist. It means that when an image of a Deity (like Shrikrushna) is used, the divine energy of that Deity too exists there. The mouse pad is constantly rubbed and lightly struck by mouse, which in a way rubs against the image of Shrikrushna and warrior Arjun. As the mouse pad in constantly kept on the desk, it catches dust, , thus the image of Shrikrushna and warrior Arjun also becomes dirty. The mouse pad is likely to be touched with dirty hands, get thrown around and once old may eventually turn up in the waste bin.. All these things amount to denigration of highly revered Shrikrushna and warrior Arjun, which is hurtful to the religious sentiments of Hindus. In turn this increases your destiny and Sin.

Deities’ images should be in temples and the hearts of devotees and not on mouse pad or consumables. We feel that manufacturers use Hindu Deities’ images to increase sales, but actually it is denigration and an offense as per Indian Penal Code section 295A. Further please note that using religious symbols on products is an offense as per the Indian Trade Practice Act 1999.

In view of above, we request you to stop the advertisement/sale/manufacture of mouse pad with symbols/pictures of Hindu Deities on them. Please acknowledge this letter and inform us in writing about the action taken by you in this regard, failing which we will be forced to start a protest campaign. Awaiting your prompt action and reply.
