A customer’s message on Swiggy while ordering food has triggered a controversy on social media with netizens asking does food have a religion? A Swiggy customer from Hyderabad mentioned that his order should not be delivered by a Muslim delivery boy. After the incident, the chairman of Telangana State Taxi and Drivers JAC Shaik Salauddin shared the screenshot of the instruction mentioned by the customer and requested Swiggy to take a stand against such a request.
“Dear Swiggy, please take a stand against such a bigoted request. We (delivery workers) are here to deliver food to one and all, be it Hindu, Muslim, Christian, Sikh. Mazhab Nahi Sikhata Aapas Mein Bair Rakhna,” he tweeted.
However, Swiggy has not responded to the tweet.
In another incident a Swiggy user in the city didn’t take the food that a Muslim delivery boy had brought for him. The man claimed that he had written in the delivery instructions, “Very less spicy. And, please select a Hindu delivery person. All ratings will be based on this.”
