Icon change and edit war by Pradyumnas741

@ Pradyumnas741: Do not make major changes to the icon without a prior proper discussion and consensus. Do not edit war.

Consider the scholarly literature. Hinduism is complicated. It is a way of life. It has a lot of diversity. It has many schools, many deities, many paths (e.g. Bhakti - Hare Krishna versus Yoga versus Vedanta versus etc), and even monism and atheism are part of Hinduism according to scholarly literature (Read: Julius Lipner, Hindus: Their Religious Beliefs and Practices, 2nd Edition, Routledge, ISBN 978-0-415-45677-7). Indonesian Hindus have their own system of beliefs. If you wish to make changes, propose your changes here, and justify your proposal with verifiable and reliable scholarly sources. Then wait for comments. Once a consensus is reached, appropriate changes to the icon can then be made. Ms Sarah Welch (talk) 13:02, 10 September 2014 (UTC)

yes, the svg version is better (and has proper transparency for the background). Frietjes (talk) 14:42, 13 September 2014 (UTC)
