Dear Sir / Madam,

Subject : Request to stop advertisement/sale of products with Hindu Deities symbols/pictures like Deity Shiva on T-shirt

Hindu Janajagruti Samiti is a registered NGO engaged in social, religious and National welfare work. The Samiti is active throughout the world, educating people about Dharma in scientific way, campaigning against malpractices that have been attached to religious practices while also solving issues of national, social and religious importance. For further details please refer to our website

We appreciate your efforts to glorify Hindu Dharma by showcasing Hindu Deities on your products. We understand that accordingly you might have used Deities’ pictures and religious symbols on your products. But we have received many complaints about your product.

As per Dharmashastra and spiritual science, the word, touch, form, taste, fragrance and the energy associated with them coexist. Whenever any image of a Deity (like Shiva, Shrikrushna or Shri Ganesh) or a divine symbol (like Om or Swastik) is produced, the divine energy is present in that. However, when clothes with such imagery are used they are touched with dirty hands, may get splattered with mud, washed with other dirty clothes, get thrown around and once old eventually turn up in the waste bin or drains etc. This amounts to denigration of revered Deities, 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 Tshirts / trousers. 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 advertisement /sale of the following products with Hindu Deities symbols/pictures.

1. Mecha-om-nical Black Graphic T-shirt (–11025500701)
2. Holy Smoke Black Graphic Print T-shirt (–11039800701)
3. Ganesha Dove Grey Graphic T-shirt (–10729902701)
4. Shiva Black Graphic T-shirt (–11258700701)
5. Lord Shiva Navy Graphic T-shirt (–10387108502)
6. Ultimate weapon Black Graphic T-shirt (–11363500701)
7. Krishna White Graphic T-shirt (–10473107601)

Please note that this is not a comprehensive list, so we request (ask) you to remove any other item that we may have missed from this list, if it is likely to hurt feelings of Hindus.

Please acknowledge the letter and inform us in writing about the action taken by you in this regard.
