An episode of “Xena: Warrior Princess” has been yanked from worldwide syndication after being criticized by Hindu groups. A spokesman for Renaissance Pictures, the show’s producer, apologized Monday for offending members of the Hindu community and said the company had no plans for further episodes involving Hindu deities. Last month Hindu protesters said they were frustrated when studio executives wouldn’t meet with them to hear their concerns about the show’s portrayal of Lord Krishna and Hanuman. If a decision is made to re-air the episode, changes will be made with guidance from Sunil Aghi, president of the Indo-Americans Political Foundation, Renaissance said.
