A doctor I work with as an ER nurse has taken to wearing a reverse swastika at work. This is the original left facing emblem originating in India. This doctor is from India.
I personally understand the origins of this symbol, but I’m wondering if his lapel pin is being misinterpreted by our patients and their families, many of whom are not very educated.
What do you think? Is using this now taboo or does the public need to be educated to respect the Hindu origins of this symbol?
