In recent developments, a sweet shop owner in Bandra West, Mumbai, was asked to remove the word “Karachi” from the name of his sweet shop initially titled as “Karachi Sweets”.

As per reports, Nitin Nandgaokar, Shiv Sena leader, had asked the owner of the sweet shop to do the same. As a result, the word Karachi is now covered with a newspaper. Moreover, in a clip surfaced on social media shows Nandgaonkar urging the owner to replace the word ‘Karachi’ in ‘Karachi Sweets’ with something in the Marathi language.

On the other hand, earlier, India’s popular jewellery brand Tanishq had to go through something similar. Several people on social media had a problem with the brand showcasing a Hindu girl being married in a Muslim family. Many claimed that the advertisement by Tanishq promoted "love jihad", and soon the word spread against the concept, gathering hate on several social media platforms. People shared ill messages for the makers and also demanded that the advertisement be removed. Even though several people loved the ad, for it promoted a good message, the progressive stance on the subject was not appreciated with Tanishq eventually removing the ad.

In the past, Maharashtra had banned the release of controversial film "Muhammad, the messenger of God" days after the Raza Academy had asked for the same citing the movie as "blasphemous". The government had also ordered for the shutting down of Don Cinema's portal. Moreover, Anil Deshmukh, Maharashtra Home Minister, had written to the Centre on the matter stating that the movie will hurt religious sentiments. The movie was scheduled for online release on July 21 and was directed by Majid Majidi.
