Zomato Wins Omar Abdullah's Respect & Love For 'food Doesn't Have A Religion' Response To Hindu Rider-wanting Customer

Earlier in the day, Zomato India received massive praise on social media on Wednesday with its befitting reply to a customer, who cancelled his order because the delivery guy who was assigned for his food delivery was a "non-Hindu".
