Hindus call for boycott of PharmEasy app as its advert insults Ramayan and Shriram

PharmEasy app is a start-up that sells medicine online. It has prepared a TV commercial, that was aired on Star Sports during 2nd Test match between India and Bangladesh. Advertisement depicts a scene from Ramayan, where Shri Lakshan is struck by a bunch of arrows and falls unconscious. Then a Sage asks Shriram to bring ayurvedic medicines from Himalaya. Then Shriram asks ‘who will get medicines from such a long distance ?’ Then 2 people from PharmEasy arrive on a scooter and hand over medicines to Shriram. At this time, a voice says get medicines home delivered online and then everyone is showed dancing on a song promoting PharmEasy.

With such advt, PharmEasy has hurt religious sentiments of millions of Hindus, just for the sake of marketing. Now Hindus are calling for Boycott of PharmEasy app through social media
