'Food has no religion,' the phrase that has started to make more sense since Zomato shut down a bigot, who refused delivery from a non-Hindu person.
While a section of netizens lauded Zomato's move, another section is calling Zomato 'double standards' for putting up with the faith of only one religion community.
Zomato's 'Halal' tag has given rise to a major controversy where people have taken to Twitter to allege that the app is religiously biased. People claim that by having the 'halal' Zomato is associating religion to food.
Not only that, users of the app have now come up with a lot of complaints against it and put up tweets with '#ZomatoUninstalled'.
In a recent response to this, Zomato's official Twitter account put out a post that attempts to justify it's 'halal' tag.
However, this post doesn't seem to stop twitterati from uninstalling the app and then tweeting it:
Dear @ZomatoIN— Bhartiya Nilay Pandya 🇮🇳 Proud Indian (@nilay_pandya) August 1, 2019
JFYKI, Customers are GOD in this kind of Capitalist economy. We do not need lectures on Religion especially from a Food aggregating app.
Also, there are enough tweets showing your hypocrisy.
Hence, I have got#ZomatoUninstalled from my phone. pic.twitter.com/8BlZ2nuRxn
