An ad for a Ganesh Rudraksh pendant was banned in Britain, reports Asian Age. "The Advertising Standards Authority (ASA), an independent advertising watchdog, ruled last week that the advertisement for the pendant had breached television advertising standards, which prohibit advertising for products or services within the recognised character of the occult." According to the ad, the pendant is supposed to ward off evil spirits and promote good health. The station that originally ran the ad said that wearing the pendant was "comparable to Christians wearing a cross." What do you think?
