The company is in the buzz from last one week since they have released their new Holi ad with hash tag #BoycottSurfExcel.
Check out the ad here:
Though they tried to spread a good message through this ad but people on social media had mixed reactions to it. Some really appreciated Surf Excel for their work while others criticized them for supporting Muslims. Check out the people’s comments below:
In school days,we had a Muslim teacher,she used to cook food for us (Hindu students) on holi,we used to go to her house and play holi with all her family members.— tilak purkayastha (@tilak2010) March 10, 2019
The same during Shab-E-Barat, we used to light candles and serve food to children at her house.#WellDoneSurfExcel
It’s ultimately a marketing strategy. It’s not about values. Doesn’t matter whether the ad was good or bad. Just watch, if they feel their market share dipping, they will drop the ad like a hot potato.— shankar.subramanya???????? (@shankar_subr) March 10, 2019

Islam is the religion which leads the followers in every public domain.— Farhan Abid (@FarhanA36013854) March 11, 2019
How can you say not to drag religion in any public domain.
Islam tells you how to trade, how to behave with neighborhood, with family, how to rule , how to struggle. etc.
