MP wrote letter against Aamir’s advertisement

Bengaluru, October 21 (Agency)

BJP MP Ananth Kumar Hegde has objected to an advertisement of a tire company by actor Aamir Khan advising people not to burst crackers on the roads.

In a letter to the company’s chief executive officer Anant Vardhan Goenka, Hegde has asked him to take note of the recent advertisement that has created “outrage among Hindus”. Hegde said in the letter, “The recent advertisement of your company is sending a very good message. ….I request you to solve another problem faced by the people on the roads…that is, roads are blocked in the name of Namaz on Fridays and other important festivals.’

In his letter dated October 14, he has also asked Goenka to raise the issue of noise pollution in the company’s advertisements as “in our country loudspeakers above mosques make a lot of noise during azan.” …that sound is beyond the permissible limit. On Friday, it is extended for some more time. The MP said in the letter that I am sure that you can feel the discrimination done to Hindus for centuries. …Nowadays a group of ‘anti-Hindu actors’ always hurt Hindu sentiments, whereas, they never try to expose the wrongdoings of their community. ‘Therefore, I request you to take cognizance of this particular incident where the advertisement of your company has created fury among Hindus.’
