Zomato's savage comeback to the man has left everyone impressed online, with many calling out the customer and coming in support of the company.
Homegrown restaurant search and food delivery platform, Zomato, on Wednesday called out one of its customers for religious discrimination against one of its rider. Through a savage response on Twitter, the company stated that 'Food has no religion'.

A customer, whose Twitter handle goes by the name 'Amit Shukla', had placed an order with Zomato. He then cancelled it and did not demand a refund because his order was being delivered by a non-Hindu rider. He took to Twitter to share the news, however, his tweet was not well received.

The customer tweeted to Zomato saying, "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."



His tweet soon went viral and in response to his bizarre request, the company tweeted, "Food doesn't have a religion. It is a religion."



Zomato's founder Deepinder Goyal also echoed his company's stand and said that "we aren't sorry to lose any business that comes in the way of our values."

"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.
