Still Waiting on Rioting Hindus…

It has been 2 weeks since Halloween
This was supermodel Heidi Klum on Halloween dressed up as Kali:
Predictably, Heidi won best costume according to this story:
Heidi Klum faces flak from Hindus for posing as Goddess Kali in Halloween bash
Now, for some opinion:
The reason I waited 2 weeks to post this, was to give the offended parties a chance to gather up the troops and take to the streets in mindless rage-fueled protest.
It’s been a fortnight and well, there haven’t been any reports of Hindus overturning cars, boycotting Project Runway, burning Klum in effigy, promising bodily harm to her or her family, or even holding signs that say “Behead those who insult Hinduism”.
None of that. All we have is just a call for Heidi to come forth with a public apology, an offer to further explore Hinduism (as misguided as it may be), and a bunch of crickets chirping.
Certain adherents of other religions could stand to learn a thing or two from Hindu reaction to Heidi’s choice of Halloween attire.
