On July 2, Amazon put this ad in newspapers across the country.
Yep. Just a simple thank you to customers across the country in many official Indian languages. Well, it turns out they left out one: Sindhi. Here’s what’s been circulating on WhatsApp for the last few days:
No one seems to know where this is from, but some people on Twitter think it’s probably from a small Sindhi community newsletter. No. One Cares. They’re furious. And they’re tweeting about it. #RhetoricalAwesomeness
The nation wants to know.
What social problems? This is clearly the burning issue of the day! How dare they?
Behave yourself, Amazon.
@amazon Dear amazon today u had thanked your customers in different languages but you had not written in Sindhi language why this behavior ?— hushar maru (@husharmaru) July 4, 2015
Yep. Till the next purchase only.
Update: Amazon has issued an updated version of the ad on its Twitter and Facebook accounts which now includes a "Thank You" in Sindhi. #SindhiIsNoLongerIgnored
Because we can never thank our customers enough... thank you once again for shopping with us. pic.twitter.com/Kkk0eCcwFf— Amazon.in (@amazonIN) July 13, 2015
