While watching last week’s episode of Saturday Night Live, I had a feeling one particular skit would anger one particular Hindu:

Distinguished Hindu statesman Rajan Zed, in a statement in Nevada (USA) today, said that Lord Ganesh was highly revered in Hinduism and was meant to worshipped in temples or home shrines and not to be thrown around loosely in reimagined versions for dramatic effects in TV series for mercantile greed. Such absurd depiction of Lord Ganesh with no scriptural backing was hurtful to the devotees.

Such trivialization of Lord Ganesh was disturbing and offensive to the one billion Hindus world over, Zed, who is President of Universal Society of Hinduism, said and requested NBC to immediately remove it from all its websites and other links.

I’m too bored to repeat the same things about Rajan Zed’s dickishness. Let’s chuck the commentary and enjoy the offending skit (NSFW) (I found it hilarious when I saw it; your mileage may vary):
