An invitee posted a pic of this on social media platform where the users expressed their discontentment.
“Food art is a form of art and it should not be used to demean our gods and goddesses. We should respect our culture and tradition. Appropriate steps should be taken so that it is not repeated again,” an invitee expressed.
