The Reason why Boycott Amul is Trending on Twitter Today
To understand why Twitteratis have started using #BoycottAmul as the trend, we first have to look at the following video.
This video was posted by Suresh Chavhanke, editor in chief of Sudarshan News. From what it looks, this video talks about the intrusion of Muslims in the government workforce, increment in the numbers of Muslims in IAS and IPS, Jihad in the government workforce, etc. The video was uploaded on 25th August and aired on 28th August, at 8 pm. Many people claimed that they were hurt. More important was that one of the sponsors of Sudarshan News is Amul. This led to the massive outrage against Amul and thus #BoycottAmul started trending on Twitter. The boycott was not just limited to Amul sponsoring the news channel. The users even dug out old tweets that Amul had made during the abrogation of article 370, celebrated Ram Mandir Bhoomi Poojan, and Amul’s support to Smriti Irani, with users also criticizing these tweets.
So this was the trend story of #BoycottAmul on Twitter. A screenshot showing Amul sponsoring Sudarshan News is shown below.
