Aamir Khan's CEAT Diwali advertisement receives backlash for hurting Hindu sentiments

Taking objection to an advertisement by tyre major CEAT Ltd. in which Aamir Khan is seen advising people not to burst firecrackers on the roads during Diwali, BJP MP Anantkumar Hegde has written to MD and CEO Anant Vardhan Goenka to take cognisance of the advertisement causing "unrest among the Hindus''. He also asked the company to address the "problem blocking roads in the name of Namaz and noise emitted from mosques during Azan." In his letter to Goenka, Hegde wrote, "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."

He also highlighted the noise pollution caused due to Azan and wrote, "loud noise is emitted from mics arranged on the top of mosques in our country when Azan is given". His letter further read, "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. 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. Therefore, I kindly request you to take cognisance of this particular incident where your company's advertisement has created an unrest among the Hindus."
