Effect of awareness created by HJS ! Hindus should pay gratitude at the feet of God for this success.
About a month ago on receiving a complaint from devout Hindu HJS started an online campaign against Infibeam.com(An online shopping portal) which had denigrated Hindu gods Shri Shiva, Shri Ganesh, Shri Kartikeya and Shri Parvati in its advertisement called 'Ganesha orders a Book'.
Many devout Hindus participated in this online protest campaign against Infibeam. One such devout Hindu Mr. Amit Kakri have received an apology letter from Infibeam.com in which they have apologized for the denigrating advertisement and asked their advertising agencies to remove the denigrating advertising immediately. The apology letter from Infibeam was received on 13th April just one day after starting a protest campaign i.e. on 12th april.
Infibeam.com have also requested to notify immediately if someone sees the advertisement broadcasting anywhere, so that they can take it up individually with release agency.
As Infibeam.com have now apologized, HJS now call off its online protest campaign and pay gratitude towards god for this success !

Recently, Hindu Janjagruti Samiti, a non-profit Hindu organisation, received complaint from devout Hindus about an advertisement 'Ganesha orders a Book' by Infibeam.com. Infibeam.com is an online shopping portal which has denigrated Hindu gods Shri Shiva, Shri Ganesh, Shri Kartikeya and Shri Parvati in its advertisement called 'Ganesha orders a Book'. The advertisement is being broadcasted from last couple of days on various TV channels by many broadcasters including reliance big TV .
A devout person cannot begin to imagine what has conjured up and graphically crystallised in this advertisement wherein it portrays that Shri Parvati gets bored without Shri Shiva . So Shri Ganapati asks Shri Paravati if she wants to read a book to pass her time and tells her that by just logging on to Infebeam.com any book from the world can be ordered and Shri Paravti tells Shri Ganapati that she wants a Steve Jobs book ." In this advertisement the deities Shri Shiva, Shri Ganesh, Shri Kartikeya and Shri Paravti have been presented as cartoons in a very funny way . It is highly objectionable to Hindu religious sentiments that the revered Deities are being used in the fictitious context.
The Advertisement 'Ganesh orders a Book' by Infibeam.com denigrating Hindu Gods
Shri Shiva, Shri Ganapati, Shri Kartikeya and Shri Parvati are greatly revered and their worship is very popular among Hindus and there are numerous temples dedicated to them. Hinduism is the oldest and third largest religion of the world with about one billion adherents.
Infibeam.com should immediately withdraw this advertisement showing some “responsibility” to its hurt Hindu customers worldwide. Moreover Infibeam.com should create a high-level check system so that denigrations like this did not happen in the future. Meanwhile Hindus all over world should boycott Infibeam.com products and services till the time they don't withdraw denigrating advertisement of Hindus gods and apologize to Hindus.
