Cheryl Cole’s new video – Parachute – has reportedly offended leading Hindu Scholars. Cheryl has been accused of portraying the Indian goddess Kali in her new video. Kali is apparently associated with divine energy and is widely worshipped in the faith.
Rajan Zed, a religious scholar has demanded “clarification” from the Girls Aloud singer over the imagery used in her music video.
Zed has allegedly said: “The goddess Kali is highly revered in Hinduism and she’s meant to be worshipped in temples, and not to be duplicated in music videos for publicity stunts or thrown around loosely for dramatic effects. This should not be taken lightly. No faith, larger or smaller, should be ridiculed. The inappropriate use of Hinduism concepts and symbols is not OK.“
He added: “We welcome entertainers who immerse themselves in Hinduism, but they should take it seriously and respectfully and not just for indecorous showing of Hindu symbols and concepts to advance their selfish agenda. Casual flirting sometimes results in pillaging serious spiritual doctrines and revered symbols and hurting the devotees.“
Cheryl Cole or her management have so far not commented on the matter, but I’m going to go out on a limb here and offend the Hindu’s myself.
WHAT THE FUCK ARE THEY ON ABOUT????? When I look at Cheryl Cole’s Parachute Video (Below), there is nothing that suggests that she is trying to portray anything but herself. Or am I missing something here folks? Id be interested to hear your views on this. Leave a comment below…
