Welcoming the Centre's tough stand against the US Administration in the wake of the treatment meted out to a young Indian diplomat, VHP leader Pravin Togadia Tuesday suggested the need to boycott American items.
"1st time UPA acts tough with US. Devyani Khobragade, as woman & Indian, shouldn't have been treated this way by the US. Boycott US products?" Togadia tweeted.
"US always criticises caste system in Bharat while there are instances of racism there. Devyani Khobragade ji was purposely ill-treated there," he said.
"All those who are using anything American, must give it up. Products, services, agencies, whatever (what about Google, Yahoo, FB, Twitter???)" he wondered only to add "@USIBC American companies like Colgate, P&G, J&J, Compaq, IBM, Microsoft, Boeing, Google, Yahoo, FB made trillions past many decades from India".
When pointed out by one that "twitter that you are using to send this message is American", the VHP leader contended that it was because of this he was only wondering about it and suggested someone from India should come up with an alternative.
"I know! That's why I asked, what about Twitter etc! Any Indian option? Am sure someone will come out with it soon here!" he replied to comments on him using Twitter.
