In India, guests are treated as “God”, however, we were shocked to see how a Swiss couple was harassed and was left seriously injured due to stone pelting. We had a big question in our minds, “Is this how India is?”.
This incident shocked many and received a lot of backlash on social media. Amidst this, Radio Mirchi came up with a campaign “#MatAaoIndia”, but it went seriously wrong.
No doubt, the treatment received was nothing less than “Worst”, but it seems Radio Mirchi’s choice of words in the campaign didn’t go down well with people.
Someone shared the jingle on Twitter and since then, people are criticizing Radio Mirchi;

This is how people lashed out at Radio Mirchi;
Sir this radio is always critical of the present govt, but this time they just insulted the nation cause they don't like MODI

Strict action should be taken on RM and set the example for future. Cancel their license. Nothing less.

No doubt, the aim of Radio Mirchi was good, but they could have done it in some other subtle way. What do you feel?
