Sacrilege! Uproar over Petronas playing funeral video Diwali

Diwali death video

An NGO Angkatan Warga Aman Malaysia had threatened to launch a nationwide protest if Petronas refused to remove the advertisement.

The NGOs secretary-general, S Bharathidasan, said that the video was an insult to Malaysian Hindus as it did not have any message related to Diwali.

"Dancing on the street is not Malaysian Indian culture.

The dance routine is an imitation from Tamil movies. Stereotyping Indians like this is bad and should be stopped," he said.
