Nestle India on Thursday said it has retracted a range of its KitKat chocolate bars that featured images of Hindu deities after outrage on social media, PTI reported. The wrappers of the limited range of the chocolate bars, released globally, had photos of artwork by local artisans, according to The Guardian.
The Indian version of the wrapper featured images of Hindu deities Jagannath, Balabhadra and Subhadra. Several consumers took to social media to accuse Nestle of hurting religious feelings.
