Aamir Khan is sometimes in the news for his personal life and sometimes about his work. He is now making headlines for an ad. In fact, he has worked in an advertisement on behalf of Ceat Tyres which has been released recently. You can see Aamir khan in this ad who is known as the Mr Perfectionist of Bollywood. However, Aamir khan’s ad has sparked controversy. In fact, at present, people are criticizing not only this tyre company but also Aamir Khan for this advertisement on social media.

People are calling Aamir Khan anti-Hindu by watching this ad and Aamir Khan. Tell you that Aamir Khan is appealing to people not to ignite crackers on the road in this advertisement. People are now angry with Aamir Khan’s appeal and are constantly tweeting with hashtag #Boycott_hinduphobic_CEAT on social media. Now, when it comes to advertising, it can be seen that “Aamir Khan, who has become crazy about cricket along with children, is saying that if our team hits sixes today, then we will also burst firecrackers, within the society.” The road is for driving, not for launching rockets.

Hearing this, all the children salute Aamir Khan. Now people are calling this advertisement anti-Hindu. One user wrote, ‘Aamir Khan is anti-Hindu, Bollywood and especially Khan actors are targeting Hindu festivals, but we Hindus want his films.’ On the other hand, another user wrote, ‘The road is not for fireworks once a year, not for dancing in marriage, but for offering namaz five times a day. CEAT tires you should shame.’ With this, a user wrote, ‘Harsh Goenka himself is Hinduphobic. First of all, we all need to unite.’ Let us tell you that the owner of CEAT Tires is Harsh Goenka. While targeting him, another user wrote, ‘I will change the tires of this company and ask others to do the same.’

Taking objection to an advertisement by tyre major Ceat Ltd in which actor Aamir Khan is seen advising people not to burst crackers on the streets, BJP MP Anantkumar Hegde has asked the company to also address the “problem blocking roads in the name of Namaz and noise emitted from mosques during Azan.”

In a letter to the company’s MD and CEO Anant Vardhan Goenka, he requested him to take cognisance of the recent advertisement creating an “unrest among the Hindus”, and expressed hope in future the organisation will respect the “Hindu sentiment”.

“Your company’s recent advertisement in which Aamir Khan advising people not to fire crackers on the streets is giving a very good message. Your concern to public issues needs applause. In this regard, I request you to address one more problem faced by people on roads, i.e., blocking roads in the name of Namaz on Fridays and other important festive days by Muslims,” Mr Hegde said.

In the letter dated October 14, he said, it is a very common scene in many Indian cities where Muslims block busy roads and perform Namaz, and at that time, vehicles like ambulances and firefighter vehicles are also struck in traffic causing “grave losses”.

Also, requesting AV Goenka to highlight the issue of noise pollution in the company’s ads, the MP from Uttara Kannada said, every day, “loud noise is emitted from mics arranged on the top of mosques in our country when Azan is given”.

“That sound is beyond the permissible limits. On Fridays, it is prolonged for some more time. It is causing great inconvenience to people suffering from different ailments and taking rest, people working in different establishments and teachers teaching in classrooms. Actually, this list of sufferers is very long and only a few are mentioned here,” he said.

“As you are very keen and sensitive towards the problems faced by the general public and you also belong to the Hindu community, I am sure you can feel the discrimination done to the Hindus since centuries,” he further said, adding, nowadays, a group of “Anti-Hindu actors” always hurt the Hindu sentiments whereas, they never try to expose the wrong doings of their community.

“Therefore, I kindly request you to take cognisance of this particular incident where your company’s advertisement has created an unrest among the Hindus,” Mr Hegde said, as he expressed hope that in the future Mr Goenka’s organisation will respect the Hindu sentiment and will not hurt it directly or indirectly by any means.
