“Dear Everyone,” he wrote. I am aware of the uproar caused by my last post. My goals were not to cause anyone distress or anger, and I profoundly regret that. Instead, my aims were to bring us all closer together… But I see how it didn’t come out the way I intended. I will be more mindful of what I post and how I phrase things now that I know it has offended many of my Hindu brothers and sisters. I apologize profusely. “I adore you all.”
Lucky had previously written. “The name ‘Brahman’ is derived from ‘Brahma,’ which is derived from ‘Abram,’ which is derived from Abraham or Ibrahim. The Brahmans are descendants of Ibrahim. Alaihisalam… The Father of All Nations… therefore why is everyone squabbling and fighting amongst themselves?”
