Offensive to hindusEdit

There should be at least a paragraph that many Hindus find this brand to be offensive, since it also happens to be same as that of a Hindu deity. See http://www.indiapost.com/beer-firm-denigrates-brahma-name/ http://www.thedrinksbusiness.com/2014/02/hindu-statesman-brands-brahma-beer-hurtful/ http://www.albanytribune.com/10022014-hindus-urge-anheuser-bush-change-name-popular-brahma-beer/

Those people don't seem to know it's a Brazilian brand which started in the 19th century so why would they be worth listening to? Also, given that with 8000 languages in the world, pretty much every one and two syllable word its possible to say is going to have meanings in hundreds of languages it's not possible for people from one country to reserve words like that in other languages. For example Vishnu is the accusative case of "black cherry" in many Slavic languages, and "Deva" means "girl" or even "slut" in some of the Slavic languages. Their own word for god, "Bog" means something like "muddy swamp" in English - but we don't get to regulate how other people use words outside our own country. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 194.1.225.71 (talk) 09:32, 31 October 2019 (UTC)
