News ->Nightclubs raise Hindu ire

(6 October 2006)

Image of a Hindu Goddess as featured on the Notting Hill Blag Club website.A chain of night clubs in London called the 'BlagClub' has raised Hindu ire by using Hindu iconography, including statues of Ganesh and Vishnu, for their interior design. Hindu Youth UK claims that the clubs host parties, hen nights, and stag do's where there is often hedonistic behaviour, foul language, smoke and alcohol and that these activities are not compatible with the location of Hindu deities which are sacred for millions of Hindus worshippers world-wide.

An on-line petition has been started at and the group is hoping to reach a target 10,000 petitioners within weeks.

The group has been successul in the past in getting Minelli shoes to remove Hindu iconography from shoes and for Robert Cavelli to reconsider use of Hindu deities on swimsuits.
