An account of an alleged Hyundai dealer in Pakistan posted a message supporting ‘Kashmir Solidarity Day’ on February 5, which led to the trend #BoycottHyundai on Twitter especially among right-wing handles.
Hyundai Motor India, in an official statement, said the company stands strong respecting nationalism after a massive social media outrage over a Pakistan dealer’s message supporting separatists in Kashmir.
The @PakistanHyundai account is neither official nor verified, and has seen been removed from the microblogging site.
“The unsolicited social media post linking Hyundai Motor India is offending our unparalleled commitments and service to this great country. India is a second home to the Hyundai brand and we have zero-tolerance policy towards insensitive communication and we strongly condemn any such view,” Hyundai India wrote in its statement.
“Hyundai MotorIndia has been committed to the Indian market for more than 25 years now and we stand firmly for our strong ethos of respecting nationalism,” it said.
