Gurgaon: In the wake of the attacks in Uri, the country has been on the edge with tensions between India and Pakistan on the rise. While the government is calling for restraint, a jingoistic environment has given rise to war mongering in the country.

While political parties are attracting attention by going after Pakistani artists and authorities have been trying hard to control the tense situation, there are still some who are trying to capitalise on a grave issue in a sensitive situation.

A restaurant called Burger Singh took this to another level when they thought it’s a good idea to send out text messages offering 20% discounts to attract customers after the Indian Army carried out surgical strikes along the LOC.


The text read,

“In light of the surgical strike by India defence forces on terrorist camps(POK)”. We offer 20% off on all orders on CouponCode: fpak20.”

While both governments are debating over the surgical strikes and temperatures are soaring, the restaurant took advantage of jingoistic sentiment by giving an offer with the coupon code “fpak20”, wonder what that means.

Over the past couple of weeks, a debate has been raging on with some people calling for war and many trying to calm the situation.
