New Delhi: As the Army carried out surgical strikes on terrorists camps in Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (PoK), companies like MobiKwik, Burger Singh on Thursday announced special offers and discounts.

MobiKwik, online mobile recharge platform, offered 20% cashback with special code named “ISTSTRIKE". “Special Offer!

Similarly, Burger Singh, a burger joint in the National Capital Region, also announced a 20% discount. “In light of the surgical strike by India defence forces on terrorist camps (PoK), we offer 20% off on all orders on burgersinghonline.com. Coupon code:fpak20," the message said.

However, the discount was withdrawn after being slammed on social media with some users terming it “savage marketing" tactic. Pakistani media also ridiculed the offer. “The offer was there, but it has now been called off," a call centre executive of one of the companies said.
