Some Hindu activists are demanding that a plush toy based on the Hindu god, Hanuman, be withdrawn, reports India Post.

Kridana, a Pennsylvania-based company, specializes in toys based on Hindu epics. Rajan Zed, a Nevada-based priest and president of the Universal Society of Hinduism, said that it would send an erroneous message to children that they could control Hanuman and other deities.
