New Delhi: A 5 year old poster again impacting Myntra today. Due to this poster, #BoycottMyntra and #UninstallMyntra have started trending once again on Twitter. That too when Myntra had not made that poster.
Boycoot Myntra trends:
This is from August 2016. In August 2016, 'Boycott Myntra' trended due to an anti-Hindu poster. 5 years ago an agency ScrollDroll created an advertisement for Myntra. In this, the illustration based on Draupadi Chirharan of Mahabharata was used.
Now it's enough! Height of anti Hindu activities. They all have taken us and our religious sentiments for granted, & now it's time to show our potential to them .#BoycottMyntra pic.twitter.com/N9QDzySpj8— Shejal Joshi Bjp (@JoshiShejal) August 23, 2021
The graphic showed Krishna searching for 'extra long' sarees on the Myntra app when Dushasana was molesting Draupadi. There was no second thought after that. The Indians did not like this at all and they took Myntra to the fore.
This is not an ad, it is a direct insult to Hinduism & Hindu's everywhere. It's time to send a message loud & clear: Anti-Hindu propaganda will no longer be met with passivity. It will be met with action. #BoycottMyntra pic.twitter.com/EThpeT0xrL— Kavita (@Sassy_Hindu) August 22, 2021

This creative third party scrolldroll has created and posted and Myntra had no knowledge of or approval from it.
