Pakistani American Installs Sign Boards In Texas Comparing Hindus To Monkeys

Published on 26 March, 2016 at 3:00 pm By

The Hindu community in the US was left fuming when a Muslim Dairy Queen franchise owner put up signs at his Houston-area business that compares Hindus to monkeys.

The Hindus have been calling for the Houston business to take down the sign but to no avail.

The business is owned by 65-year-old Mohammad Dar, who is U.S. citizen from Pakistan.

When asked about the hoardings, Dar claimed he was not being prejudiced against the religion, but accused that Hindus are “racists”.

Dar further added that he rather decided to post the displays after “researching” about Hinduism for 14 years.

Hinduism is the third-largest religion in the world and fourth largest faith in the US, according to a study by the Pew Research Center in 2015.

The research revealed that there are now 2.23 million Hindus in the United States and Dar’s comments have not gone down well with majority of people.

 

 

 

 

Dar said that he is just showcasing the wrongs of certain religions, specifically Hinduism.

 

In an interview to a website he said:

“Hindus don’t follow any limit or law, they follow desires like an animal – that is the foundation of Hinduism. Monkeys don’t plan anything, they just do what they desire, but humans follow the limit and law. It’s nothing personal, it’s educational. I’m really making people mad, but what I’m doing is communicating and inviting them to communicate…they think I am attacking their religion, but I am not.”

In response to Dar’s actions, Dairy Queen’s corporate issued a statement calling the installing of the signs an “unfortunate action” adding they are “not representative of our iconic family brand”.

Though Dairy Queen’s corporate office have distanced themselves from Dar,  Rajan Zed, who is the president of the Universal Society of Hinduism, asked them to issue an apology.

Religious tolerance is not meant to be shown towards one particular faith alone. Condemnation of such incidents should come from everyone calling themselves secular.
