Dear Mr. Unwanted MNC,

You step in our country to sell your very stupid and useless wares for bloated costs, and then start to insult our holy symbols and saints.

Well I’am HEAD of Operations in a big $ 10 billion company and your salesmen come like beggers to earn some money.

Would advise you to remove the insulting ad of our Swami Ramdev from the cheap ad of your cheap MNC, and use your Pope (Head of Murder Inc.) or Jesus there none of my problem.

Otherwise this message is going to be flashed at intranet sites and mails of 4 big companies and you can count your losses

I was surprised to see the new 468×60 ad of hatke meaning & clearly insults yogguru ramdev baba & hindu culture.

Why you multinational companies like to insult out culture in this way, can you insult your own culture & country.  If you really have guts, then try to defame A Christian Saint or Muslim Saint?

We know that you all are scared from Swami Ramdev Baba as his YOga is spreading Health Asareness in people worlwide & this is resulting in downward sales of Pharma companies & Pepsi. For last many days, you have given pesticides to India, at least do not make those people ill from whom you are getting money to survive.

I too own 30 + websites & shocked to see such 3rd class adver. from your company.

I am sending this email to about 30000 visitors who visits my sites & also to making aware to boycott your products & stopping your ad from all my websites which use google & tyroo & komli ads.

Please stop this ad immediately & try to make business in honest way

Hope this kind of language is better for you

Jai Hind,

Santosh Dhumal

Subject: Stop Your Insulting Ad. Use the Pope Instead of Sri Ramdevji
To: [email protected]

I am an over 70-year old English-Tamil bilingual journalist and columnist, also an established fiction and non-fiction author.

I write this to register my strong protest for your most indecent advt. humiliating Swami Ramdevji and thereby hurting the sentiments of crores and crores of Hindus spread all over the globe.

I advise you to STOP this deliberate nonesnse atonce and you may use the portrait of the Pope if you are still interested in using religious leadwers for your publicity campaigns.

Any delay on your part will force me to write on your adaucity to all print media and ask people to avoid buying your service/product.
