Zomato food rejected for delivery boy being Muslim.
Caste and religion have gone to the extremes these days. Some have seen religion in a food delivery boy. As seen by Amit Shukla of Jabalpur.
Because Delivery Boy is Muslim! And then what happened, in in a country like India where food deliveryboy is cancelled of the order food and writes proudly on Twitter that deliveryboy is muslim.”Just cancelled an order on @ZomatoIN they allocated a non hindu rider for my food they said they can’t change rider and can’t refund on cancellation I said you can’t force me to take a delivery I don’t want don’t refund just cancel,” Amit Shukla tweetedÂ mentioning Zomato. Where he thought to express his nationalism. But Zomato manages to win over the situation and public demand by tweeting “Food doesn’t have a religion. It is a religion,”Â against the tweet of Amit
The incident has made a buzz on social media. Many praised Zomato. Amit has also been involved in criticism. But the question that is being invoked invariably, is that in a country where most people still do not get food to fill their stomachs, food delivery in the country is religion again! Isn’t this the medieval practice of thinking of people as a caste-based ‘modern’ society? Many are raising questions
Zomato owner Rupinder Goyal supported his company’s approach and stood for it. “We are proud of the idea of India – and the diversity of our esteemed customers and partners. We aren’t sorry to lose any business that comes in the way of our values,” he tweeted.
Love, Respect and support for the company started following from every directions and by prominent public figures “Respect. I love your app. Thank you for giving me a reason to admire the company behind it,” former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah tweeted.
Former Election Commissioner S Y Quraishi tweeted: “Salute Deepinder Goyal! You are the real face of India! Proud of you.”
