Logie Naidoo is seen being shot at a Steers franchise by Facebook group Dala U Crew. Naidoo in the video explains that he is there, at the Steers franchise to break his fast by consuming a beef burger.

#DURBAN: Following the backlash that ensued on social media over the controversial video, Ashwin Trikamjee, the president of the South African Hindu Maha Sabha has condemned the video in which Logie Naidoo trivialized Hindu observances.

“You cannot impinge on the sensitivities of belief among people.”

“It’s an act of blasphemy. The Sabha, together with the South African Tamil Federation, have called on the individual to unreservedly apologise to Hindus and to retract the video forthwith.

Mervyn Reddy, from the SA Tamil Federation, stated the Tamil body would not tolerate blasphemous outbursts by any individual who tarnished the Hindu religion, culture and language.

Professor Brij Maharaj, the president of the Shree Sanathan Dharma Sabha of South Africa, said there was a difference between using humour to illustrate important religious principles and mockery.

“This is an auspicious period for all Hindus, across the ideological and linguistic spectrum. Devout Hindus abstain from consuming meat and alcohol during this NavratriPurtassi period. All forms of religious intolerance and hate speech must be condemned.”
