    A superb advertisement that has been wrongly interpreted

    The Tata group company recently released a superb advertisement on communal harmony. A Muslim girl weds a Hindu boy. The girl is pregnant and the mother-in-law affectionately hugs her and proudly talks about the pleasure in getting the bangle function that is widely done in all Hindu communities.

    Not a single sensible human being will find fault with this fabulous advertisement, that goes far beyond a mere advertisement. However, sections of the ruling dispensation, as expected have raised their voice and have even threatened the Manager of an outlet in Gujarat.

    The Tata group has now withdrawn the advertisement. However, the damage done to secular values and to communal harmony will remain. I do hope Members will raise their voice against this atrocity that cuts at the very base of communal harmony and affection that extends beyond religion. There is no "love jihad" at all.

    I have not seen that advertisement. Many intercaste and inter-religion marriages are taking place in the country and it has become very common in the country. One of my known person's son married a Christian girl. Their marriage took place to times. First time as per the customs of the Hindu boy and second time in the Church as per the customs of the Christian community. The family looks after the daughter in law very nicely and the family is happy. There are no disputes. All depends on the understanding and adjustable mentality of the people. Politicians use this caste and religion for dividing and ruling the people. The public can't get into their trap. There is no point in creating unnecessary trouble for advertisements.
    Tata group is well known for its ethical values. They respect humans. They treat humans as humans only. This quality makes that group odd man out from many other industrial establishments. All is due to the great Human being Ratan Tata.

    always confident
