We're right there with ya, Hindu community! This SUCKS!
Last week, we were VERY sad to hear that Russell Brand filed for divorce from Katy Perry due to irreconcilable differences.
Then, we learned that Katy actually asked Russell to file for divorce instead of her…so she wouldn't piss off her evangelical Christian parents.
We're not sure exactly how her parents took it, but we know a group of people who are NOT taking the divorce well - the Hindus!
Here's what Hindu statesman Rajan Zed had to say about it:
"They should have taken marriage more seriously as it is a sacred rite in Hinduism."
"In Hinduism, marriage is the most important sacrament. The married couple is looked upon as a complete module for worship and participation in cultural and social acts."
"If celebrities opt for a Hindu wedding, they should be prepared to adhere to the commitment, devotion, responsibility, sanctity and morals, which are attached to it."
"There are reasons why Hindus, as a group, have one of the lowest divorce rates in the world."
We agree that marriage should be taken seriously, but we truly believe they thought they'd be spending the rest of their lives together when they got married! Unfortunately, things don't always work out as planned.
What do U think? Does the Hindu community have the right to be pissed at Russell and Katy???
