A Twitter user asked Zomato India to change the rider for his order, as the person delivering it was not Hindu. Their classy reply is winning the internet.
Bhopal (MP-India): A man from Jabalpur in Madhya Pradesh on Tuesday night took to Twitter to state that he had cancelled an order on food aggregator Zomato as he was assigned a non-Hindu delivery executive.
Using the handle @NaMo_SARKAAR, the man, with the user name Pandit Amit Shukla, wrote: “Just cancelled an order on Zomato 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.”
Stating that he would take up the issue with his lawyer, he shared screenshots of his chat with the customer care of Zomato. He complained that he didn’t want his order to be delivered by “a Muslim man.”
Zomato’s handle responded: “Food doesn’t have a religion. It is a religion.”
Zomato Founder Deepinder Goyal seconded the response and tweeted with a Tricolour emoji at the end of the message:“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.”
