I appreciate that in this case the swastika is not a racist symbol. However, I do wonder if OP intentionally chose this image as a bit of a controversy-bait, since Diwali has dozens of symbols associated with it, such as this one

By choosing the swastika, you have chosen a symbol you know will provoke a stronger reaction, both from people who misunderstand it and from those who will rush in to defend it.

No i think it correctly describes your original use of the image as an avatar and the argument your attempting to make now.

Context is super important in this case. The number one rule on CC is "don't be intentionally annoying." If you are choosing an avatar that you know will be controversial, just because it is controversial, then you are intentionally being annoying. If you honestly feel that using a swastika as your avatar is a representation of some religious belief, then that is probably ok. If that is actually the case, then say so. Otherwise, the mods will rightly err on the side of not offending anyone.

This is entirely about you because you were asked to remove the image as your avatar.

Since you're sad that CC wouldn't allow you to be "intentionally annoying" you are convinced it is a religious discrimination thing. When its not. it about you attempting to provoke a response from the community..

if you havent noticed, no one has said a word about the image being used in this post, despite the fact the post could probably be removed for trolling.

I think it might be worth pointing out that there are several easily visible differences between:

A) the red Hindu swastika with slightly curved arms and dots in the middle (as seen in the OP)
and
B) the black Nazi swastika with no curves and no dots

To my knowledge, only the Nazi swastika is being sanctioned on CC.

By sanctioned, I assume (hope) you meant discouraged.

If a player has an offensive avatar, the mods ask him/her to remove it within 24 hours. If they choose to do not, then the mods will do it for them.

So first its discouraged to wear the avatar, then sanctioned.
