India is still trying to cope up with the horror of Pulwama attack. Following the attack, protests started cropping up all across the country. The nation demanded retaliation for this horrifying attack. People also started boycotting anything and everything to do with Pakistan. Even the film association decided to ban artists from our neighboring country. The anger, considering the present situation is understandable, but the way of expression is hard to justify.
Angry mob attacking an outlet of Karachi Bakery in Bengaluru is such an example. People protested over the name of the eatery that’s a namesake of one of the popular cities in Pakistan.
This protest is highly unjustified and misguided! The bakery has made a name for itself over the years after its opening in 1953. There’s hardly any who haven’t tasted the delicious items of this brand. Shamefully, after the outburst, the store had to cover the name Karachi.
Eventually, they also came up with a post explaining the origin of the name. In the post, they also reaffirmed the fact that they are ‘absolutely Indian by heart’. This declaration in itself speaks volumes about the misguided patriotism we have inside us.
People protested thinking that this age-old bakery is actually supporting Pakistan. Can it get any more ridiculous? Aren’t we better than this? Thankfully, there are people who think in the same way. They took to Twitter to express their thoughts.

no , we are not… that’s just wishful thinking . if we were better we actually would not be reading this . just because some of us want to be better doesn’t make most of better.

Faye our generation has seen the aftermath of Kargil & 26/11 & Never was the situation this bad.
Society has turned toxic & a lot is due to the present day Journalism.
This statement by Karachi Bakery is a slap on the face of every Indian who is proud of its democratic ethos
