Republican ad featuring Lord Ganesha ‘offends’ Hindus; party issues apology

The advert, on the occasion of the ‘Ganesh Chaturthi’ festival, included the imagery of Lord Ganesha with the text, “Would you worship a donkey or an elephant? The choice is yours”.

HOUSTON, 20th September 2018: The ruling Republican party in the US has apologised to the Hindus after a newspaper advertisement featuring Lord Ganesha to woo the minority community voters in Texas ended up “offending” them.

The advert, on the occasion of the ‘Ganesh Chaturthi’ festival, included the imagery of Lord Ganesha with the text, “Would you worship a donkey or an elephant? The choice is yours”.

The elephant is the party symbol of the Republicans while Democrats have donkey as their party’s symbol.

The Indian-American community described the political advertisement of the Grand Old Party in an Indian-American newspaper as “offensive” for featuring Lord Ganesha.
