An FHA Volunteer from Columbus, Ohio, USA noticed a denigrating picture on her friends Facebook page. On this page, Deity Shri Ram was humanized by replacing His face with a friend’s face and then shared in a group to wish him on his birthday.
The FHA volunteer approached them and explained why this is denigration and leads to sin. Using such a picture is nothing but an insult of Shri Ram, a highly revered Hindu deity worshiped by billions of Hindus worldwide. The friend was requested to remove this image from Facebook and other social websites. As a result, the impact of the denigration was understood, and the offending image was removed.
Dear readers of FHA, you can also learn from this inspiring effort and protect Dharma in your own little way, so Dharma will protect you. Let us pay heartfelt gratitude for this response. This shows the importance of promptly protesting against any denigration. Let us be alert and be vigilant towards the denigration of Hindu Deities and Hindu Dharma and appeal against it promptly and peacefully! – Editor
