Sindhi people are furious at Amazon and you won’t believe why
Amazon put out a newspaper ad thanking customers in many Indian languages -- except one.
On July 2, Amazon put this ad in newspapers across the country.
Yep. Just a simple thank you to customers across the country in many official Indian languages. Well, it turns out they left out one: Sindhi. Here's what's been circulating on WhatsApp for the last few days:
Wait what?!? @amazonIN Did you see this? #RUSeriouspic.twitter.com/lgqbbQ4JHK— Achint Parekh (@Achint) July 13, 2015
No one seems to know where this is from, but some people on Twitter think it's probably from a small Sindhi community newsletter. No. One Cares. They're furious. And they're tweeting about it. #RhetoricalAwesomeness
#SindhisIgnored@amazon Why was Sindhi language ignored here? Isn't it very much a part of India? http://t.co/e0n0fglY9d@RadioSindhi— Divya Gajria (@DivyaGajria) July 2, 2015
The nation wants to know.

Update: Amazon has issued an updated version of the ad on its Twitter and Facebook accounts which now includes a 'Thank You' in Sindhi. #SindhiIsNoLongerIgnored
Because we can never thank our customers enough... thank you once again for shopping with us. pic.twitter.com/Kkk0eCcwFf— Amazon.in (@amazonIN) July 13, 2015
