Indian restaurant delivery service Zomato spoke up on social media after a Hindu customer refused to accept a delivery from a Muslim driver.

The Hindu customer took to Twitter using the handle @NaMo_Sarkaar saying, "Just cancelled an order on @ZomatoIN they allocated a non Hindu rider for my food they said they can't change rider and can't refund on cancellation I said you can't force me to take a delivery I don't want don't refund just cancel."

In a second tweet, he posted, "We have shravan and I don't need a delivery from a Muslim fellow."

Shravan is a holy month in the Hindu calendar.

Zomato India’s Twitter account responded, "Food doesn't have a religion. It is a religion."

The tweet was retweeted over 29,000 times and was liked more than 94,000 times.

Twitter users were quick to respond to the Hindi man’s complaint.

@kskiyer posted, "Absolutely rubbish. If you are so particular about Shravan, cook at home, don't order outside."

Another user, @Chandral_ wrote, "Seriously? What if the chef was a Muslim? What if the one who packed your order was a Sikh? What if they bought ingredients from a Christian? From the farm to your doorstep, the food could've been touched by anyone. You shouldn't be ordering online if you are concerned about it."
