Why is #BoycottUberEats trending after Zomato row?
With Hindu rightwingers calling for boycott of both Zomato and Uber Eats, some are switching to Swiggy
Even before the Zomato delivery controversy has ended, a new one has broken out on the Internet. The Zomato row broke when Amit Shukla, a resident of Jabalpur, who ordered through Zomato, objected that the delivery was done by a Muslim; he then cancelled the order, and complained to Zomato. Zomato stood its ground, and later tweeted that "food doesn't have a religion; food is a religion".
The company founder said that he does not regret losing any business coming in the way of the company'svalues. After this, Uber Eats retweeted Zomato's tweet saying 'We Stand By You'.
In return, Zomato sent a greeting emoji to its rival. Irked by this, Hindu activists, who were tweeting in favour of Amit Shukla, took up the issue and tweeted #Boycott Uber Eats on Twitter. Many users are posting on Twitter their mobile screenshots where they have un-installed both apps.
Many users have appealed to followers to teach Uber Eats a lesson by tweeting in favour of Amit Shukla. They are angry with Uber Eats, and feel it should not have tweeted in favour of Zomato.
So @UberEats_IND feels @ZomatoIN is right. Well, to all my Hindu Brother's, time we find out who's right and who's not? #boycottzomato #boycottubereats- Akshay Khandelwal (@ akshaysince1987) July 31, 2019

However, many users of Zomato and Uber have also come out in support. They believe that these two companies have stood by secular values, and need to be supported.
