People on social media claimed that the ad was nothing but a promotion of 'love Jihad'. Soon after the social media storm, the company decided to take the ad off.

That’s our soul sir. Unity in diversity bachpan mein sunte the. Aise to kitne ads hote the. Koi kuch nai kehta tha.. par chalein sabke apne vichar! (We have been hearing about Unity in Diversity since childhood. There have been a number of ads like this one before but nobody said anything about them. But to each his own)".
