Hindu Leader Reportedly Upset With Henry Cavill Following Superman Remarks


Henry Cavill


A Hindu statesman says that Henry's statement, which suggests comparison between Superman and Hindu deities, is 'hurting the feelings of the devotees.'

Hindu people are reportedly upset over a statement made by "Man of Steel" star Henry Cavill recently. During a promotional event, Cavill said that Hindu and Superman had two things in common, hope and goodness. The British hunk stated, "India has a rich mythology and they're both [Superman and Hindu mythology] rooted in the same thing - hope and goodness."

Cavill's statement apparently upsets Hindu devotees who do not like the idea of comparing a character from comic book with their deities. Hindu statesman Rajan Zed told Wenn (via Contact Music), "Comparing gods with a human-created comic book fictional character is a trivialisation of all-powerful God, to whom we owe our existence."

"Superman, at most is a cultural icon, while God produced and sustained the world and was the source of being and life. Hindus offer prayers to our deities and worship them. It was insensitive for Cavill to drag them in comparison with an earthly character, thus hurting the feelings of the devotees," Zed added.

In April, Zed urged Selena Gomez to apologize after wearing bindi, a religious symbol on forehead, during "Come & Get It" performances. "The bindi on the forehead is an ancient tradition in Hinduism and has religious significance. It is also sometimes referred to as the third eye and the flame, and it is an auspicious religious and spiritual symbol," Zed explained.

"It is not meant to be thrown around loosely for seductive effects or as a fashion accessory aiming at mercantile greed. Selena should apologize and then she should get acquainted with the basics of world religions," he added.
