Recently a case in the headlines, which is allegedly challenging the sovereignty of our country. In the matter, a Delhi-based lawyer has requested the Corporate Minister and Delhi Police to register a complaint against Hyundai India, KIA India, KFC India, and Pizza Hut India and cancel the licenses of these companies.
Delhi Citizen Advocate Vineet Jindal has claimed that unsavoury statements and photographs have been posted recently by companies challenging their social sovereignty.
According to the lawyer, most Twitter users have condemned the company’s statements and posts.
The lawyer has urged the MCA to cancel the registration of these companies and stop them from doing business in India. He has requested the Delhi Police to register an FIR against companies violating IPC and sections 121A, 153, 153A, 504,505 of the IT Act.
Reason for complaining:
The lawyer says that controversial statements and photos targeting India’s sovereignty have been posted by these multinational corporations to increase commercial benefit in Pakistan, which is very heinous.
The counsel further said that these MNCs have attempted to undermine the sovereignty and integrity of India by making heinous statements on public platforms accessed by millions of users.
The complaint also brings forth the aspect that Kashmir has been a sensitive issue of India for many years, and hence, conflicts between India and Pakistan continue to take place. Kashmir is an integral part of India, it is considered a part of India all over the world.
These companies are using social media platform posts to show their support, in their own interest, and are provoking Kashmir solidarity by using objectionable references to Kashmir. This is further increasing the cause of conflict between the two countries.
The statements and posts made by these multinational companies are inciting the people of India, are creating an environment of tension, and enmity between different communities within the country, and are becoming a threat to the peace and harmony of the country.
