Hindus Call for Relocation of Lord Brahma Shrine from Las Vegas Casino Premises

RENO, NV- Upset Hindus are calling for the relocation of the Lord Brahma Shrine, situated outside the renowned Caesars Palace casino on the Las Vegas Strip, denouncing its placement as sacrilegious.

Rajan Zed, a prominent Hindu figure, expressed deep concern over what he deemed as highly insensitive and disrespectful positioning of the revered deity. Placing Lord Brahma in proximity to a gambling establishment, adjacent to Hell’s Kitchen with its symbolic pitchfork and Beef Wellington, a risqué circus tent, and a cocktail bar, was seen as an affront to Hindu sentiments.

Zed emphasized that Lord Brahma, a central figure in Hinduism, deserves reverence in temples or home shrines, not to be subjected to such denigration. He urged Tom Reed, CEO of Caesars Entertainment, Inc., to uphold the company’s stated values of responsible conduct and relocate the shrine appropriately.

Highlighting Hinduism’s status as the world’s oldest and third-largest religion, Zed stressed the importance of respecting symbols of faith. The Brahma Shrine, featuring a bronze statue of the deity, stands as a focal point for the three million Hindus in the USA.

Caesars Entertainment, Inc., boasting its leadership in gaming and hospitality, must recognize its role as a responsible corporate citizen and address the concerns raised by the Hindu community.
