Facts Check Analysis:

The facebook page viral on social media claiming that Zomato’s sales have decreased by 60% in 10 hours after users started boycotting it.

A few days ago, a man named Amit Shukla had canceled his Zamato order only because the delivery boy was a Muslim. Amit shared this with his Twitter account. After this, Zomato had written a reply to Amit's tweet that there is no religion to eat, the food itself is a religion. This response of Zomato was highly appreciated by many people on social media, while some people criticized it.

“In 10 hours only Zomato sales have dropped down by 60%. Try a bit harder, it should reach 90%. Long live Hindu unity,” the text of the graphic claims.

(Translated from Hindi – 10 घंटे में ही Zomato की बिक्री में ६०% की गिरावट. थोड़ा और ज़ोर लगाओ हिंदुओ आंकड़ा. ९०% तक जाना चाहिए. हिन्दू एकता जिंदाबाद” )
