Hyundai India condemns Hyundai Pakistan’s Kashmir Day post

Thousands of Indians made “BoycottHyundai” a trend on Twitter after the company expressed solidarity with people of Kashmir on Kashmir Solidarity Day, which is a public holiday in Pakistan.

Indian users called for the boycott of the Korean company as they condemned Hyundai Global for”needling Indian via its Pakistan handle”.

Hyundai India also issued a statement but fell short of an apology whcih Indian Twitter users have been demanding.

Hyundai Pakistan in its Kashmir Day message said, “Praying for the liberation of our eternally beautiful Kashmir and always”.

Some Pakistani Twitter users were of the view that the statement in favor of Kashmir was issued by Hyundai’s Pakistani dealers and not by the company itself.
