Burger King was forced to pull back an ad and apologize to the Hindu community after it displayed an ad portraying the Hindu goddess Saraswati along with a Whopper sandwich. The sandwich made of a beef patty, and egg based mayo, both forbidden by strict vegan Hindus added injury to the insult.
However following the worldwide outcry, the ads were pulled from the restaurants in Spain where it was displayed. This has probably just given another excuse to anti-globalization proponents, who demonstrated and destroyed KFC outlets when they opened, to oppose the opening of more western fast food restaurants. McDee’s serves only non-beef meat and vegetarian sandwiches in the outlets they operate in India.
The ad says: The meal is sacred.
