Dear Sir,

We sincerely apologize for the depicting our own god and goddess  in one the advertisements created by our advertising agency MUDRA Communications.

This was done by them without our approval and our knowledge and being a Hindu company, we never intend to do this. we have been patronizing all Hindu cultures and values for many generations. Please send your telephone number and address, so that we can redress the situation. We have taken serious note of this and have instructed the advertisement agency to stop this depiction immediately.

Best Regards,

Cycle Brand Employees’ E-mail to HJS

This is in response to the report on regarding defamation of Hindu Gods by Cycle Brand Agarbathies. I would like to render the following facts.
1. I am an employee of Cycle Brand Agarbathies.
2. The pictures are indeed in poor taste
3. Please note that the ad was not released in any publications , newspapers or magazines. The ‘Ads of the World’ is a platform for Creatives of Ad world.
4. Some amatuer artist had used the logo to take part in some contest without the consent or knowledge of the company. it should also be noted that in the era of advanced technology, any third party can deliberately post pictures using logos and company names without knowledge or consent of the company.
5. The fact that the ads were not released for commercial purpose by the company proved that company’s role is not there.
6. still taking moral responsibility the company has decided to take up the issue with the ad agency.
7. since the pictures are posted in various blogs and website, it is not practical to remove it from web.
8. hence it should be deemed okay if the company doesn’t use/publish the pictures.
So I request your goodselves to remove the campaign against the company per se.
