Hindu man refuses Zomato takeaway over 'Muslim driver'

Indian restaurant search and delivery service Zomato has been praised on social media for its response to a Hindu customer who refused to take a delivery from a driver who appeared to be of Muslim heritage. He also posted a second tweet with a screengrab of his conversation with customer service on the app asking to change the rider and explaining: "We have shravan and I don't need a delivery from a Muslim fellow." Shravan is a Hindu holy month devoted to the god Lord Shiva. NaMo Sarkaar was advised in the private message that it would cost 237 rupees to cancel his delivery, which was to take place in Jabalpur in central India, at that point in time. While a minority did respond to Zomato's tweet agreeing with Mr Shukla's reaction, generally he has come under an immense degree of criticism, with others on Twitter advising him to cook his own food, especially during the auspicious month.
