On July 31 (Wednesday) Zomato responded to an event where one of its customers refused to collect his ordered food from a Non-Hindu delivery boy. The customer has shared the incident on social media which soon became viral and started an online debate. But, according to Article 15 of the Indian constitution, “the state should not discriminate against any person on the grounds of race, religion, caste, sex, etc,”

Zomato’s apologies tweet for “Non-halal” food is going viral

Zomato took to its official twitter account and said, “Food doesn’t have a religion. It is a religion.” (sic). Zomato’s response has been widely appreciated by twitter users. On the other side, a group of people started a debate with the screenshots of Zomato apologizing to its customers for not delivering Halal food.

The heated supporters of the customer who refused to accept the food from “Non-Hindu” delivery boy have vented out their distress over Zomato’s apologies tweet for the “Non-halal” food.

However, Zomato is a food delivery partner that is tied up with restaurants around the country. In fact, people would order the food from their favourite restaurant and it gets delivered through Zomato. Therefore, logically the restaurants need to take care of the type of food served to the customers, not Zomato.

Reportedly the unhappy “Non-Hindu” refusing customers have given a low rating and reviews to Zomato on Google Play Store and App Store.
