Hyundai recently came under fire in India as the carmaker’s Pakistan’s social media handles shared an anti-India post.
The social media post talks about remembering the “sacrifices of Kashmiri brothers” on February 5, which Pakistan observes as Kashmir Solidarity Day.
Pakistan observes Kashmir Solidarity Day to mark their support for the Kashmiri separatists or say anti-India elements in India.
Thereafter, HMIL was quick to issue a statement saying that it stands firmly for its “strong ethos of respecting nationalism”.
HMIL, a wholly-owned subsidiary of South Korea’s Hyundai Motor Company has also partnered with Hyundai Nishat (Hyundai Pakistan) for manufacturing, marketing and distribution of its product line in Pakistan.
Several Twitter users also complained that when they asked for clarification from HMIL, they got blocked on Twitter by that handle.
Later, HMIL via a statement stressed its ethos of respecting nationalism. This is not the first time when any brand has come under fire over such sensitive issues.
In the past, man well-known names and brands have got the taste of social media trolling.
