HGH, HAF and MTS respond to anti-Hindu signs posted at Dairy Queen in Kemah

KEMAH – Large signs at the Dairy Queen restaurant in the 1100 block of State Highway 146 in Kemah has the attention of the Hindu community as one of them depicts Hindu Gods mentions Hinduism. (See CW39 TV report on page 4) .

In a joint statement of Hindus of Greater Houston (HGH) and Hindu American Foundation (HAF) stated, “While Mr. Dar has a First Amendment right to say what he wants at his own place of business, we find it disappointing that he chooses to malign Hinduism and its pluralistic ethos in the manner that he does. In times like these, signs like Mr. Dar’s only serve to contribute to ignorance and mistrust, as opposed to building bridges and understanding. We hope the customers who go to his store see past his signs and reach out to Hindus in their community to learn about their beliefs.”

Sri Meenaksi Temple Society in Pearland in their statement (KPRC reported), said “Hindu philosophy allows one to respect other faiths and accommodate a broad perspective, rather than claiming monopoly of the Divine presence. We believe in ONE God, who can be worshipped in its numerous manifestations, just as water can be in the form of ice, snow, steam or flowing river. Truth is one, but the wise call it by different names.”
