Swastika - is it ours?

I had accepted this symbol to be the soul of Hinduism and good charm for Jainism and Buddhism, but it was lost in the memories of the recent past. Lately, it drew my attention after Prince's unscrupulous attempt to display it in public and after Hindus' push over getting its reverence back to their culture.

is it revered or cursed? Or has it lost its innate respect b/c of the mindless use of it to merge the past with the present? I believe that it has become difficult to maintain the profoundness of ones culture in this rapidly changing world. Who would have thought of moving tattoes from thai province to the depths of western land?
