Funny Swastika

Take a look at these templates:

with the Image:HinduSwastika.svg displayed prominently. Honestly, of all of Hinduism's symbols' did this one have to get "headline" billing on these templates? Alternatives are aplenty if one were to look around on articles listed on {{Hindu Deities and Texts}} where there are dozens of less offensive symbols that could be chosen for the same purpose. While the swastika may be ok with some Hindus, it should not be flashed around "in all innocence" because for the rest of the world that was caught up in World War II it was the symbol of literal EVIL, DEATH and DESTRUCTION emanating from the Nazis. It was Hitler's personal diabolical "symbol of choice" and for that reason it is VERY far from neutral, no matter in what context it is used. It violates Wikipedia:Civility to have it displayed in such an "in your face" fashion on these Hindu templates, giving it a dubious "place of pride" it does not deserve. Need one say more?

I have replaced the swastika (a minor Hindu symbol) with the Aum (a major Hindu symbol). -- User:RyanFreisling @ 00:38, 5 January 2007 (UTC)
Thank you very much. What about the other templates? Thanks for caring. IZAK 02:31, 5 January 2007 (UTC)

Removed Satyanarayana Pooja

As it is a "puja ceremony", not a "holy day".--Redtigerxyz (talk) 06:03, 17 November 2007 (UTC)

Regional festivals

There are already many regional festivals in the template, but all of them are major ones like Thaipusam and Durga Puja. Minor regional Hindu festivals need not be put here.--Redtigerxyz Talk 12:54, 11 September 2009 (UTC)
