A French sanitaryware manufacturer has apologised and decided to withdraw its Buddha-themed toilet covers after Buddhists complained about the products which appeared in the bathroom of a hotel in France.
SAS Olfa sales manager Aldo Gennaro said in a letter: "The creation of this product had of course no view to undermine the image of Buddha. So we decided to stop marketing this product and will as soon as possible withdraw the image on our website."
A copy of the letter was seen by the Bangkok Post.
