Hindu groups are furious that Selena Gomez wore a bindi at the Billboard Music Awards Sunday, reports E! Hindu leaders said Selena’s insensitive performance trivialized Hinduism. President of Universal Society of Hinduism, Rajan Zed, chastised Selena for remaining insensitive to the feelings of Hindus after religious leaders expressed their sentiments following her performance at the MTV Movie Awards on April 14.
Hollywood needs to understand that Hinduism concepts and symbols have well-defined meanings and purposes, which should not be used for dramatic effect onstage. After Selena’s controversial performance she kissed Justin Bieber backstage and Taylor Swift watched with disgust.
Also, Miley is no longer following Selena she must be furious about the bindi.
