Hindu Goddess sells Greek whiskey

IBNLive : Hindu Goddess sells Greek whiskey: "The Hindu community leaders in Europe are up in arms. A disco bar in Greece has invited the wrath of Hindus for displaying a poster of Goddess Durga promoting a whiskey brand.

Large posters inside and outside the Balon Oriental Disco Bar in Athens depict the Goddess carrying bottles of Southern Comfort Whiskey.

They are also upset that Lord Ram's image has been used on a tissue paper box. The Indian community in Athens has been trying for the last three months to have the posters removed but in vain. Letters have been sent to the American manufacturer of the whiskey to withdraw the poster."
