According to an IANS report, the Twitterati commented on how books are considered to be a form of Goddess Saraswati in the Indian culture, several others reacted to the pictures from the shoot. A Twitterati wrote, “Books in Hinduism are considered Goddess Saraswati and in Islam the very first verse of the Quran reads 'Among you the Most Generous is Who taught by the pen, taught man that which he knew not.' You are insulting our composite culture by such advertisements,” while another comment read, "One time I was asleep and I touched a book by mistake with my foot. I woke up and took the book's aashirwad coz it's Saraswati before going back to sleep again. How is she standing on books? Paap lagega."
