Myntra to change logo after a complaint says it’s offensive to women

Published

on

Fashion e-commerce site Myntra has decided to change its logo following a complaint filed by Mumbai-based woman activist alleged that the log is insulting and offensive towards women. The complaint was lodged at Mumbai’s Cyber cell branch.

Last year in December, Naaz Patel of Avesta Foundation lodged a complaint demanding removal of the logo by Myntra and appropriate action against the firm. Patel had alleged that the previous logo resembled a naked woman and had also taken up the matter in various forums and platforms on social media.

Following up the complaint, Rashmi Karandikar, DCP, Cyber Crime Department of Mumbai Police, had stated that the logo was indeed found to be offensive in nature. An email was then sent to the e-commerce firm regarding the same. Myntra replied that the firm would revise their logo on their website, app as well as on all packaging material. They have already issued printing orders for packaging material with the new logo.

Myntra is one of the largest online retailers for clothes and accessories in India. The annual winter sale proved to be massive for Myntra as it logged a 51 per cent increase in the website traffic during 2020.

Founded in 2007, Myntra was acquired by Flipkart in 2014. The company later acquired fashion e-retailer Jabong in 2016. It has since grown to become one of the country’s biggest online fashion websites.

PM Modi on Kharge’s Ravan remark, says Congress is competing who can abuse him more

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday hit back at Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge’s Ravan comment and said there’s a competition going on among Congress leaders as to who can use the most abusive words for him and deliver the stinging attack.

Addressing an election campaign in the Kalol town of Panchmahal district, Modi said the only way to teach Congress a lesson is by voting for Lotus in the second phase of elections in Gujarat.

He further said that Congress doesn’t believe in democracy and can go to any extent to please the people. Modi said Congress believes in one family and not democracy. They can do anything to please that one family and that family is everything to them, not democracy.

Those who never believed in the existence of Lord Ram have now brought in (demon king) Ravan from Ramayana, he said. Further quoting him he said he is surprised they never expressed repentance, and forget about tendering an apology, after using such cuss words for him.

Addressing a large gathering, he further stated a few days back, a Congress leader said Modi will die a dog’s death, and another said Modi will die Hitler’s death. Another said if he gets a chance, he’ll kill Modi himself.

Someone says Ravan, someone says rakshas (demon), someone says cockroach, he said, he is not surprised that Congress calls Modi names, but he is surprised that despite using such words, the Congress never has remorse. Congress thinks it is their right to insult Modi, the Prime Minister of this country, he added.

PM Modi’s remark came just days after Kharge referred to Modi as Ravan while speaking at a rally in Ahmedabad. Kharge questioned whether PM Modi has 100 heads because he is the face of all elections, whether civic or assembly. Modi Ji is the Prime Minister, and all the time he’s talking about himself. How many times do we see your face? How many forms do you have? Do you have 100 heads like Ravan? he stated.

This is the land of Maa Ahilya even today and will remain so. No one can deny it. Even today Mother Ahilya walks with Shivling in her hands, Pt Mishra adds.

The girls of Indore cannot push their limits so much so that they buy liquor by queuing up at the liquor shops. These cannot be the daughters of Indore.
