Letter: Hoddle in the dock

Sir: Glenn Moore, your football correspondent, referred to Glenn Hoddle's unfortunate remarks as "gratuitously offensive". The belief expressed by Mr Hoddle is one of the core tenets of both the Hindu and Buddhist faiths. Am I then to assume that The Independent's position is that adherence to these faiths is also offensive ?
