Looks like Zomato has made us a habit of being in controversies because of religious issues. If you remember, just a few days ago, a Hindu individual refused to take delivery of food from a Non-Hindu delivery boy as the holy month of Shravan is going on. At that time, Zomato declined this and canceled the order and didn’t refund his amount. People even praised Zomato for taking this stand on this matter.
However this time, the food delivery guys are saying that their religious sentiments are getting hurt as they are being asked to deliver those food items which are prohibited in their religion.
Due to this, the delivery guys have decided to go on a strike from Monday and have refused to deliver beef or pork during the festival of Bakrid or Eid al-Adha which is on 12th August (Monday).
The Zomato delivery staff has made 2 demands that they want to get fulfilled from the management. Firstly, their pay order should be revised and secondly, their religious sentiments should not be hurt in the future.
The delivery staff has allegedly informed the higher officials about their decision but there has been no response from them.
