An American brewery company has apologised for naming a beer after Hindu goddess Kali and has stated that it is currently scrambling to rename the product, amidst protest in the Indian parliament.
The 'Kali Ma' beer which was scheduled for launch on May 15th has now been postponed till the Portland-based company finds a new name to it.
'Kali-Ma' the beer was earlier announced as a variety of spiced wheat ale and displayed the picture of a Goddess with four arms and three severed heads.
Strongly objecting to the US Company launching the beer brand named after Goddess Kali, a demand was made in Rajya Sabha on May 15th that US Ambassador to India should be summoned and asked to apologise for it.
Meanwhile speaking to our news team Presidents Advisor on Hindu Religious affairs Sri Ramachandra Kurukkal babu Sharma expressed these views.
