A hoarding of a condom company featuring Sunny Leone created conspiracy ahead of auspicious festival of Navratri in the city of Surat. It has a tagline which says ‘’This Navratri, play, but with love’’.
The Commissioner of Police has ordered to remove the hoardings placed at several locations including Udhna, Athwalines, Vaachha and Majuragate after several people protested for the removal of these hoardings.
Protesting groups came out on roads and protested at Udhna area in Surat and Bhartiya Gauraksha Manch President Dharmesh Gami lodged a police complaint against the same.
He said, “The hoardings of condom company with the message having double meaning had photo of Sunny Leone. It has hurt our religious sentiments. Navratri is our religious festival and it is the Gujarati tradition of playing the garba’’.
‘’We will make representations to municipal commissioner, against the agency who had got license of putting hoardings at different places and take legal actions against them’’.
Later on, on the orders of Police commissioner such hoardings were brought down from all locations.
Commissioner of Police Satish Sharma said, “We have brought such hoardings down, as the advertisement was of condoms and it should not be linked up with the religious festivals and even photo of Sunny Leone was semi-nude. We have received complaints from the public and we brought down the hoardings’’.
