When the debate and discussions are at a peak following the incident related to Zomato, the incident is now taking a new turn.
A twitter user with the name Amit on Wednesday tweeted about an ordeal that he faced after ordering food from Zomato India. The Twitter user in a series of tweets said that he did not want to receive food from a non-Hindu delivery man as it was a holy month of Shravan.
Food doesn’t have a religion. It is a religion. https://t.co/H8P5FlAw6y

However, things turned when Zomato India tweeted stating that food does not have a religion and it is a religion. Later the founder of Zomato India tweeted,” 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.”

While many appreciated Zomato’s move to counter the ordeal with their secular remark, many now think that Zomato has acted against the Hinduism. A ‘campaign’ under the title #BoycottZomato is now making rounds on social media sites that allege Zomato of taking a side.
Amidst this controversy, some twitter user started sharing old tweets by the Twitter user Amit Shukla that shows that the person had put forward an objectionable tweet to the well-known writer Taslim Nasreen.
