ExpressIndia contains an article on the objections of Hindu organizations "a French manufacturer's refusal to remove a deity from its designer shoes." Specifically, "French manufacturer Minelli refused to respond to requests for withdrawal of the sale of designer shoes with images of Lord Rama." Among other things, these Hindu organizations are protesting against France's bid for the 2012 Olympic games, and are instructing sympathetic listeners to stop flying Air France.
These Hindus join Sikhs who are upset at France for instituting a ban on articles of faith, including turbans, in public schools.
