Manufacturing company Hindustan Unilever is under fire after an old commercial advertisement showing Hindu-Muslim unity resurfaced on the Internet.
The video from September 13, 2018 surrounds the theme of Ganesh Chaturthi shows a Hindu man going to an idol-maker but steps back on knowing that a Muslim man has created it. He then walked away disappointed until the Muslim man offers him Red label chai.
The last frame reads, ‘Inspired by a true story.’

Hate-filled comments were littered with vile and soon hashtag #BoycottRedLabel began trending on Twitter asking the makers to remove the advertisement from the entire streaming platform.
The Twitterati also asked the ad-makers to apologize for hurting religious sentiments.
