After food delivery platform Zomato, McDonald’s India is now facing a major backlash over serving Halal meat to its customers.

A Twitter user asked McDonald’s India whether their restaurants are Halal certified, the company said it does serve Halal meat to its customers.

Soon after this, the hashtag #BoycottMcdonalds began to trend on Twitter.


Some people also came out in support of the food chain.

In a similar incident, Zomato faced flak after it said that food doesn’t have any religion while responding to a customer who refused to accept an order delivered by a Muslim delivery guy.
