The official statement by Zomato reads, “The halal tag on Zomato is a result of restaurants seeking that distinction — not us as an aggregator,” the company said in the letter, adding, “We provide this information, so that you, as a customer, can make an informed choice about whether you want to eat Halal meat, or not. As an aggregator, it’s imperative that we showcase all the various facets that a restaurant would like us to display to its potential customers.”

Several people who disagree with Zomato’s statement have started giving one-star reviews on Google Play and App Store. Following which many have even uninstalled the app.

Meanwhile, even Uber eats users have started boycotting Uber eats making it a twitter trend with #BoycottUberEats as it supported Zomato after it refused to change the delivery boy as per their customer’s demand.
