Hindus, upset by the reported anti-Hinduism display at a Dairy Queen (DQ) restaurant in Texas, are asking the International Dairy Queen Inc. CEO John P. Gainor Junior to issue a formal apology and arrange to remove the displays.
Hindu statesman Rajan Zed, in a statement in Nevada today, said that DQ should not be in the business of disparaging religions. Posters reportedly displayed at its Kemah store in Texas were highly inappropriate and trivialized the oldest and third largest religion of the world with about one billion adherents and a highly philosophical thought.
Zed, who is President of Universal Society of Hinduism, indicated that DQ should have shown some responsibility and already taken action regarding these signs posted at the Kemah restaurant reportedly for many months.
Rajan Zed pointed out that DQ seemed to have even failed to follow its own “Mission Statement: To create positive memories for all who touch DQ” by allowing such derogatory signs at one of its restaurants.
