Haven't we already bashed them enough on various threads.
Snapdeal's business will go to Amazon and Flipkart and Paytm and the dozens of other e-commerce companies mushrooming all over India. There will be no loss.Why is that so ?? What did snapdeal do ?
Imagine the livelihood of thousand of employees dependent upon this one app and just because some nuthead uttered some twisted word you cannot / should not destroy the lives of other less fortunate
Just my 2 cents
Aamir Khan has probably bitten more than he could chew.
Playing divisive and anti-national politics by giving out such statements as a responsible public figure will not go down well with major brands in future. Godrej already distancing itself from the great Khan.
Sustainable or not, it does send a clear message to all the brands out there that potential consumers will not buy just because one of the iconic Khans is endorsing it.Snapdeal seems to be in mood to weather it out. The management and investors must be thinking that this is a temporary blip. This campaign needs to be sustained over several weeks before the Brand takes a decisive hit, which I sincerely doubt that the RW will be able to sustain such campaign.
Another metric will be the response of the movie goers towards the Shah Rukh and Amir Khan movies. Again I have my doubts.
But if the campaign manages to make an impact, things will change drastically because it is gonna hit where it hurts these Liberals the most: MONEY.
Trending Hashtag with the help of Bots / Fake profiles. NiceThey have started a "paid" trend #SnapdealForIndia but fortunes haven't improved much for Snapdeal. The message has already been sent, loud and clear.
Some Seculars are crying, how can they even muster courage to support AwardWapsi and oppose AppWapsi in same breath?
But that is the idea that secular hindus should think twice before employing anti-nationals like AK. It will hit SnapDeal or other organizations in the short run, but it will hit traitors in the long run.Well uninstalling snap-deal to protest against Amir`s comments seems quite stupid and juvenile to me. We are forgetting that Snap-deal is not owned by Amir. He is just one of their brand ambassadors. Most of the Snap-deal employees may be Hindus like us. It will be they who suffer the brunt of our protest if the company does go down the drain. Protest against any wrongs is appreciated but it should be directed against the people who are responsible for the wrongdoing. Senseless protests and dharnas will do us little good.
A correct form of protest would be to stop watching the films of the Khan troika. Yet very few Indians are willing to do so. Salman Khan spoke out against the hanging of a well known terrorist who had caused great harm to India. However both of his recent outings,Bajrangi Bhaijan and Prem Ratan Dhan Payo were blockbusters. It only shows that we are just venting our frustration at the wrong place. (Maybe the Indian masses prefer to watch the heroines of Sallu bhai`s films and cannot protest against that.:biggrin2
P.S. The owner of Snapdeal is Kunal Bahl.
