Anti-Hindu signs at Kemah (Texas) restaurant of “Dairy Queen” (DQ), which upset Hindus worldwide found highly inappropriate, have been reportedly removed.

Dean A. Peters, Associate Vice President of Communications of American Dairy Queen Corporation headquartered in Minneapolis, in an email response to distinguished Hindu statesman Rajan Zed, wrote on March 31 evening: “We are pleased to announce that as of Wednesday, March 30th, the DQ location in Kemah, Texas is now under new ownership and all interior and exterior signs posted by the former franchisee were immediately removed from that location.”

Zed, who is President of Universal Society of Hinduism, in a statement in Nevada today, thanked International Dairy Queen (IDQ) Inc. for understanding the feelings of the community and resolving the issue.

But, Rajan Zed pointed out, that DQ appeared to have been shirking from its responsibility by not formally apologizing for allowing these derogatory signs reportedly posted at its Kemah store for many months. DQ seemed to have even failed to follow its own “Mission Statement: To create positive memories for all who touch DQ” by permitting such disparaging signs.

Zed urged IDQ Inc. CEO John P. Gainor Junior to come up with an official apology and institute a mechanism in its franchise operations ensuring that such belittling of religions did not happen in the future. Posters reportedly displayed at its Kemah store were highly inappropriate and trivialized the oldest and third largest religion of the world with about one billion adherents and a highly philosophical thought.

International Dairy Queen Inc.; based in Minneapolis; is a subsidiary of Omaha headquartered Berkshire Hathaway Inc.; serving treats and food in over 6,600 locations in USA, Canada and 28 other countries since 1940. Warren E. Buffett is the CEO of Berkshire Hathaway Inc.

Be it a simple painting or a majestic design of graphics. Almost everyone is fond of poster(s). It’s a statement of who you are and what you represent and a quick and an affordable way to change the decor of your home.

You take your sweet time to put them up on the wall and create an aesthetic. And only major enthusiasts will understand the pain when a poster accidentally tears away.

Designing posters is one of the most upcoming forms of art, with everyone having their own unique style. So its only sensible that this form of art gets its museum.

New York City just got itself the first poster museum which has the largest collections of posters from all around the world. It includes small minimalistic things like posts, sardine to more sophisticated ones. The owner himself is a poster enthusiast who owns many political posters, especially those from Russia.

“I am always buying new and old, there’s always something that’s happening today that’s interesting and worthy of saving”, Said the owner.
