MacDonald’s in Amritsar Forced to Write Name in Punjabi


A sign on the popular world restaurant MacDonalds was seen in Punjabi. The sign came after public pressure that all restaurants and public places should have the native language of the state with other languages. A public outrage had occurred in the State of Punjab where Punjabi was being shown below two other languages.

Many people felt that Punjabi the native languages of the Punjabis should be given more respect by being placed on top and various signs should have Punjabi written on it.

Many fast food chains had originally ditched the idea of writing in the similar name signs as other places in the heritage walk at Sri Amritsar Sahib. However, MacDonald’s made a pleasing move by respecting local sentiments and writing their name in Punjabi. The move was well appreciated and praised by the locals who welcomed the change.
