Recently, Zomato shut down a customer in a classy way for cancelling his order because it was assigned to a non-Hindu rider.
Twitter user Amit Shukla expressed his anger over the issue and shared the screenshots of his conversation with Zomato's customer care.
Here's how Zomato responded to this tweet.
Food doesn’t have a religion. It is a religion. https://t.co/H8P5FlAw6y— Zomato India (@ZomatoIN) July 31, 2019
Zomato founder, Deepinder Goyal echoed the same sentiment.
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. 🇮🇳 https://t.co/cgSIW2ow9B— Deepinder Goyal (@deepigoyal) July 31, 2019
People on Twitter are praising Zomato's response for rejecting the idea of religious intolerance.

although he may create a new one, suspend the account from which he ordered, this fool needs some education 😂— Puneeth Kasigari (@baeforbiryani) July 31, 2019
Thanks for taking this stand, Zomato. Giving in to such idiots would only empower them more.— Neel Gudka (@neelgudka13) July 31, 2019

In a world divided over religion, food has the power to unite people.
