Pandit Amit Khampariya, Founder of Shaheed Samman Samiti in Jabalpur on Tuesday 20 April 2021

Bhopal/Jabalpur: Sanatan Mission has written a letter to N Chandrasekaran Non-Executive Director and Chairman Board of Tata Sons drawing attention to the objectionable video released by Tata Motors and is now circulating on social networks.

In Jabalpur, Shaheed Samman Samiti, nationalist organisation also joined Sanatan Mission on Tuesday in asking Tata Motors to tender an apology and immediately call back the video from the public domain. Founder of Shaheed Samman Samiti Pandit Amit Khampariya issued the firm warning that Tata Motors has a deadline of one week to withdraw the controversial video or else face opposition across the world.

In the present video, all the characters are Muslims except the driver – named Lalit who gas been shown in a poor light. Obviously the video, which is in Arabic, has been made for the Arab world to mark the month of Ramzan.

Sanatan Mission has not ruled out the possibility that the Rata Motors video was made and released in the public domain by some company functionaries with mischievous intent.

Sanatan Mission has pointed out how last year, In the wake of widespread protest from the majority Hindus, Tanishq – a jewelry company owned by the Tata Group – was left with no option but to withdraw a controversial video from the public domain featuring a pregnant Hindu woman all decked up for baby shower in a Muslim household.

The intention and emphasis in both these videos/advertisements involving the Hindus is obvious, it has been stated while asking why Tata group companies are producing such videos? The Tanishq-Tata Motors coordinates are too jarring and cannot be missed or ignored.

It appears that it is the work of some rogue elements who have penetrated the institution and are working to wreck its reputation, Sanatan Mission has been emphasised while demanding that Tata Motors should tender an apology and withdraw from the public domain the controversial video. Steps should also be taken to stop such mischievous depiction of the members of the majority community.

People are angry – this is what they are saying on Social Media

Has Tata Motors gone mad? Does Mr. Ratan Tata approve of this ad?
Seems somebody is trying to defame Tata Motors. Ratan Tata might never be aware of such ad…

Ho sakta hain TATA MOTORS mein bhi hamare kucch bureaucrats k tarah udhar bhi aise nomuna baithe hain……jo apna agenda chala rahe hain…..đŸ€”đŸ€”

The ad manager of Tanishq is ‘peaceful‘ person having same mental trait as ‘peacefuls‘ who are spitting in your food..!!Those who r saying “so what it‘s only ad“ would have no problem with contaminated food saying “so what it‘s only holy spit“..!!!

Definitely and it is happening very often. First Tanishq ad, now this.
May the person behind both is same The afgani lady as maker.

That‘s two strikes for Tata!

Sanatan Mission asks Tata Motors to apologise and withdraw from public domain its video showing driver as Hindu and in poor light

Why people are objecting to video produced by Tata Motors

Newsroom24x7 Network

Sanatan Mission has echoed the sentiments and feelings of the Hindus and followers of Sanatan dharma and condemned in strong terms a video produced by Tata Motors depicting a driver as a Hindu and showing him in poor light.

Founder of Sanatan Mission Lalit Shastri, who is also popular as Guru Lalitendra, has demanded that Tata Motors should apologise and withdraw from public domain its video showing driver as Hindu and in poor light.

Video in Hindi (à€čà€żà€‚à€Šà„€ à€źà„‡à€‚ à€”à„€à€Ąà€żà€Żà„‹)

To register its objection, Sanatan Mission has produced a video showing few clippings from the objectionable video by Tata Motors, which has been produced in Arabic especially to mark the month of Ramzan. 

It could be said that the video in question is for audience in the middle-East and Saudi Arabia but still it has come under sharp criticism as it shows a Hindu driver in poor light. 

Even if the video is for the Arab world, the onus lies on the Tata Motors and the Tata Group and they shall have to explain why they have belittled a Hindu driver by showing him as incompetent.

Last year, In the wake of widespread protest from the majority Hindus, Tanishq, a jewellery group owned by the Tata Group, was left with no option but to withdraw a controversial video from the public domain featuring a pregnant Hindu woman all decked up for baby shower in a Muslim household.

Question arises, why Tata is repeatedly doing this. What’s their agenda.

From promoting inter-faith marriage between Hindus and Muslims through the Tanishq video last year to Tata Motors now putting a video in the public domain showing a Hindu driver as incompetent, the wheel has gone full circle.

The Tanishq-Tata Motors coordinates are too jarring and cannot be missed or ignored.

The outlook is stable for Tata Motors Limited

Newsroom24x7 Desk

tata motorsMumbai, Jan. 30: The consolidated profile of Tata Motors Limited (TML) is expected to remain strong over the medium term despite its large capex plans (FY14 Capex: INR 269bn) says Fitch Ratings.

Fitch expects the capex to be funded largely from TML’s operational cash flows supported by the continuing sound operations of Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) and improvement in its Indian business. Furthermore, the company announced its rights issue plan, which if successful will further strengthen the financial profile.

Robust Performance of JLR: Fitch expects JLR’s sales and profitability to continue to be robust over the medium term, supported by a strong product pipeline and healthy global demand for premium vehicles. This is in spite of a likely increase in costs associated with the company’s large capex and increasing competition. JLR’s EBITDA margin strengthened to 19.9% during 1HFY15 (1HFY14: 16.7%) supported by growth in volumes (13.8%) and a richer product and geographic mix.

Indian Operations to Improve: Fitch expects TML’s new product launches, both in passenger car and commercial vehicles, to drive volume growth in its Indian operations. In addition, lower fuel prices, improving consumer sentiment and a likely reduction in borrowing costs are likely to support improvement in demand growth in passenger cars from FY16. We also expect medium and heavy commercial vehicles (M&HCV) volumes to grow in FY16 – supported mainly by replacement demand.

TML’s operations turned around in 3QFY15 as a result of positive volume growth in its passenger car and M&HCV segments. The company’s volumes fell until 1HFY15, resulting in negative EBITDA in FY14 and 1HFY15.

Linkages with Tata Group: The FC IDR of TML continues to benefit from a one notch uplift on account of the potential support from the Tata group. Fitch has also reviewed the ability of the Tata group to provide support to TML and in the context of potential group support, TML continues to benefit from the strategic importance of TML to the group. Any weakening of linkages between the group and TML, and/or the group’s inability to provide support is likely to affect the ratings negatively.
