Swadeshi movement of Middle East

Boycotting of Danish products is actually deep resentment, sense of anguish and outrage of millions of Muslims against the Danish government for not restraining its media from publishing highly blasphemous stuff in the name of ?freedom to speech?. This could be seen as the power of people when they express their right to ?freedom of purchase (or not to)?. So why complain?

Boycotting of the Danish products in the Middle East is akin to the “Swadeshi Movement” during our freedom struggle.

It is the actually deep resentment, sense of anguish and outrage of millions of Muslims against the Danish government for not restraining its media from publishing highly blasphemous stuff in the name of “freedom to speech”.

Already the effects are showing with the Danish company losing close to $1.8 m per day and laying off around 150 of its employees. This could be seen as the power of people when they express their right to “freedom of purchase (or not to)”. So why complain?
