Volkswagen disrespected Shriram on Dussehra, advertisement removed after protest

Result of protest by Hindu Janajagruti Samiti and devout Hindus!

Volkswagen is a famous company originally from Germany. It has now expanded all over the world. Volkswagen had released an advertisement on the occasion of Dussehra in India. In which Lord Shri Ram and Ravana were shown. In the advertisement, Prabhu Shriram was shown driving a Volkswagen car. While driving the car, he sees Ravana on the way, after which Lord Shri Ram asks Ravana to sit in the car. Then Ravana sits comfortably in the car and through this scene a message like ‘drive away evil with the goodness within you’ was given.

Thus, using Hindu Deities like Shriram for commercial gain is an exploitation of sacred beliefs of Hindus. Volkswagen had hurt the religious sentiments of crores of Hindus.

Hindu Janajagruti Samiti immediately protested against this advertisement on Twitter and demanded removal of this advertisement from all its social platforms. After this, devout Hindus also also protested this advertisement, due to which Volkswagen was forced to remove this advertisement from all its social platforms. This once again proved that united Hindus are the true power of Dharma.
