I thought the Left-Liberal position on religion and kids is- all religion is divisive & therefore kids should be allowed to blossom in 'religion less environment'. Then how are they ok with #surfexcel ad that promotes children should choose religion over playing with friends.
In the #surfexcel ad, a 5-6 year old boy chooses (?) to go to a mosque when all his friends are playing Holi, an event that happens once a year, while namaz is 5 times a day. Did the kid choose this option himself? Was he coerced by his clearly devout parents?
I have not known any little boy choosing prayers over play when his friends are playing. If his parents were forcing him to choose religion over friendship then why are left liberals not up in arms about this? Doesn't this go against classic left and liberal position? #surfexcel

Why would a company like Hindustan Unilever even consider airing an advertisement as controversial as this?

I'll try and break it down to the best of my abilities.

[thread]
HUL reported a net income of $840,000,000 in 2016-17 where their sales revenue was upwards of $4.8 billion
Their share prices have been consistently up at Rs. 1,708 as of 11 March 2019.

Safe to say, HUL is one of the big players.
On 8 March 2019, Brooke Bond who's parent company is HUL released an advertisement highlighting the abandonment of elderly parents at the Kumbh Mela.

This ad was immediately met with immense backlash from people who took offense to message in the ad.
