E-commerce website Myntra is going to change its logo. A Mumbai-based activist filed a complaint with the state cyber police alleging that the company’s logo was abusive towards women. The complaint has been lodged by a woman of Naz Patel, who is the founder of an NGO named Avesta Foundation. He filed a complaint in December last year. It has demanded to remove people and take action against the company. Patel has alleged that the old logo is similar to a naked woman.
The complaint came to Cybercrime Department of Mumbai Police
After this, the Cybercrime Department of Mumbai Police sent an email to Myntra informing the company about the complaint. Responding to the complaint, the e-commerce company owned by Flipkart had said that the company would change its logo in a month’s time.
While the company has not yet removed the curtain on its new logo, it has started the process of replacing the old logo on all platforms, including the website and app. According to reports, Myntra has also issued printing orders with a new logo for packaging material.
Deputy Commissioner of Police (Cybercrime) Rashmi Karandikar said that one of the complainants in the case came to the Cybercrime police station. He said that he called a meeting with Myntra after the complaint, they came and agreed to change the logo. He also sent an email to this. Avesta Foundation said in a tweet that best wishes to our founder. What he did seemed impossible. Thanks for all the support guys. They are very happy with the response. Thanks to Myntra for honoring the feelings of millions of women and resolving concerns.
