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 within less than 24 hours after Hindus protested, calling it “highly inappropriate.”

“Ganesh Plush Doll,” earlier selling for $18.94 at, 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.
