Walmart halts sale of Lord Ganesh doll after Hindus protest

Prime News, International, Business, New York, December 28:- ‘World’s largest retailer’ Walmart abruptly stopped the sale of “Ganesh Plush Doll” from Walmart.com within less than 24 hours after Hindus protested, calling it “highly inappropriate.”

“Ganesh Plush Doll,” earlier selling for $18.94 at Walmart.com, now shows up as “This item is no longer available,” when a customer tries to purchase it online.

Hindu statesman Rajan Zed, who spearheaded the protest asking for withdrawal of this objectionable product, in a statement in Nevada on Wednesday, thanked Walmart for understanding the concerns of Hindu community which thought that marketing Lord Ganesh as a plush doll was trivialising and insensitive.
