Angry Indian patriots are dropping hate reviews on MS Excel app, confusing it with Pakistani Surf Excel
Microsoft would be probably thinking to re-brand its whole MS Excel product as the outrageous Indian community continues to drop bombshell reviews on its app in Play Store.
A Surf Excel detergent advertisement was recently posted by Unilever India to celebrate the festival of Holi, where a Hindu girl gives her Muslim friend a ride on her bike to a mosque to pray on Holi and later the boy also joined the colors of Holi. However, outrageous Hindu nationalists have deemed it as an anti-Hindu advertisement and then the misleading rumors extensively spread on social media and lead to a Twitter storm of #BoycottSurfExcel.
But things went hilariously interesting when the Indian keyboard activists decided to take on Surf Excel on the Google Play Store too. As the Surf Excel has no presence on Play Store presently, so they started targeting Microsoft Excel app on Play store. Play Store’s Indian users started dropping negative reviews and one-star ratings to the MS Excel app on Play Store.
For instance, an Indian user who gave one-star rating wrote in his review; “You traitors, if we put our minds to it you’ll have to close your Surf Excel business and flee. You don’t know Sangh workers. Jai Gaumata”.
And this guy has absolutely no clue about what he’s saying. Since when Microsoft partnered with Surf to launch the MS Excel?
I think they got lost online a bit. pic.twitter.com/zo5AqSxb5J

It is imminent to note here that Unilever is a British-Dutch consumer goods company which has its deep roots in Asian markets. Meanwhile, Surf Excel a detergent brand was Introduced by Unilever Pakistan in 1948 under the brand name ‘Surf’, its deep-rooted heritage has made it a national icon. Therefore, some Indians deem it as a Pakistani brand.
Meanwhile, Microsoft CEO, Satya Nadella is an American business executive who is actually from India. So, the outrageous Hindu community was blaming their own people for a partnership, they never did.
