Durex Pakistan's recent post on an Eidi suggestion has evoked reactions across the internet. While many might be aware of the nature of their posts being quirky and pun-filled, similar was the tone of an upload on the occasion of the Muslim festival.

Marking Eid-ul-Fitr this April, the condom brand gave an unconventional Eidi idea to people. It is traditionally observed that parents give some money and sweets as Eidi to celebrate the occasion and spread joy, however, Durex's suggestion of gifting a condom was certainly unexpected.

In their Eid Mubarak post, Durex asked people of the nation to "Make sure your Eid celebrations start with a bang." "Tonight, give her the Eidi she deserves," read the social media ad hinting to pass on a condom as an Eid-special gift.

"Shame on you for portraying women as merely a sex object," said one of the internet users as Durex suggested giving a condom as Eidi.

Several netizens expressed their views on the post, while some found it "Islamophobic," others let go of it considering it a usual marketing gimmick. "These days, even Durex isn't missing the chance to mock Muslims," read a reaction in this regard. "Durex Pakistan is wilding," said another adding laughter emojis to keep the comment light-hearted.
