Khaadi Gets Blasted on Social Media for Not Showing Kashmir as Part of Pakistan

The Kashmir Valley, which is also referred to as heaven on Earth, is an integral part of Pakistan and there’s no denying it.

At a time when normal Kashmiris are suffering at the hands of the Indian Army, the least we could do is be mindful of their issues and support them morally.

This basic fact it seems, was lost on a renowned and local clothing brand ‘Khaadi’. It recently featured products that had a map of Pakistan, without showing Kashmir as a part of it.

The ignorance showed by the leading clothing brand has sparked a wave of outrage towards the brand.

If that wasn’t enough, Indians have also highlighted this issue and are mocking Khaadi as well.

But that wasn’t the only thing that Khaadi did wrong. It has also made mistakes in the Gilgit-Baltistan map.

People are seriously considering boycotting the brand over such a shameful act.

Everyone is making it clear loud and out that Kashmir was never a part of India.

Khaadi's new coasters have altered the Pakistan map. They should be reminded on every social media that Kashmir was, is and will always will be Pakistan.

While others are questioning the intention behind the controversial map.

These map coasters at #Khaadi use a wrong map of #Pakistan sans Kashmir.What could be the intention?

Social media pages have started sharing the post as much as possible to bring the issue to limelight.

It certainly cannot be ignored.

When the brand which was given life by Pakistanis, Khaadi, insults Pakistani map by not showing Kashmir …We shall not accept it as another innocent oversight#KashmirBanegaPakistan#WakeUpPakistan

Kashmir Banega Pakistan.

Khaadi launched new prints but Pakistan's map is incomplete Kashmir and Gilgit Baltistan shown as part of india. Raise your voice against Khaadi۔

    A cheap publicity stunt.
    Unhain pata tha k log tanqeed karaingay aur wo maafi manglaingay.
    Sasti Shuhrat for Mahenga Brand :)

    • Same as Like (Bill Pas for Khatme Nabuwat) Unhe Pata tha Hangama Hoga then Wapis Len Lege :

      • Waqas

        Bhai all parties including Sheikh Rashid signed this bill and than all of sudden Sheikh Rashid start shouting on it. Khatem-e-Nuabuawat law was not changed. It was some words changed in oath form for candidates taking part in elections.

        • Muhammad Fahad Mahmood

          Where he signed that bill?? At least here his speech one day before that thing happened.

      • Adeel

        Bhai ab ap shaadi pe khaadi k dress mat lena ?

        • Pehly Larki to Milay :

          • Sane

            larki ya aurat? larki wali umer nai hai bhai ap ke ab aurat se he shaadi karna

    • Sane

      Yes you are right. Even a 5th grader has more sanity than these so called brands, just cheap publicity stunt as you said.

  • Majid Ali

    They want to monitor nation’s pulse rate by doing such stunts.
    It seemed to be a planted strategy…

    • Sane

      If some Indian brand pulled this cheap publicity stunt, they would be burn alive in their home.

  • Shutter stock ki images use karne ka nateeja :D

  • Khaadi has been doing a lot of ‘missteps’ these past few months. Seems like they have figured out that negative publicity is free publicity – provided that you have an apology ready.

  • Chi Anh

    badnaam nahi hongay toh kiya naam nahi hoga ………..negative publicity is the best publicity ……….

    • Free Fund MAIN Khaadi Ki Publicity Ho Gayi (No Expense for Ads)

      • bilal shakir

        Shabasssh Dost shaabassh.

  • Eli Ehsan

    priorities my Pure peoples have….. :) Ghareeb ka pait kaat kar Khaadi profiteering kare to its ok, but remove a disputed land from the imaged map.!!! full on “off with their heads” kinda RAGE…… ¯_(ツ)_/¯

    • Patriot

      Eli:
      I think you have your priorities upside down — being poor is not a crime, being a slave is, and not fighting for freedom is.
      The poor gave tremendous sacrifices for making Pakistan, and it is a shame that you feel that “imaged” map is all that is stake?
      People like yourselves who have got this country for free because they were born much later, or their families were already sitting pretty on “claims” they never should have got, are the ones who can comment so lightly.
      Belonging to a family that sacrificed nearly 80% of my family for the creation of this country, shameful comments like these make my blood boil.
      Let’s do the same for your family, and THEN ask you, if its just a matter of “imaged map”.

      • Eli Ehsan

        only my Grandfather survived the “FREEDOM FIGHT” out of 3 siblings he had. Not everyone who comments skeptic is “Unpatriotic” sir. being realistic is far better than being a pigeon who closes his eyes whenever he sees the cat & that imaged map is not our cat unfortunately.

      • Sane

        Plz don’t waste your time on this guy. He is brainwashed, he can’t understand logic and rational thinking.

  • Moon Pbc

    Waisay what u guys says about if its called (Disputed Territory)

  • Syed Ehsan Ul Haq Bukhari

    Shame on Khaadi Specially who beneficial of this item
