Man refuses food delivery from Muslim

A Hindu man in Hyderabad refused to accept food that was to be delivered to him by a Muslim Swiggy delivery executive. The Swiggy executive has now filed a police complaint with the Shah Ali Banda Police Station over the incident. The Swiggy customer identified as Ajay Kumar, a resident of Aliabad, while placing an order with a restaurant set an instruction saying, “Very less spicy… And please select hindu delivery person. All ratings will be based on this.” (sic) What Ajay in his communal fervour forgot to understand was that the delivery instructions are meant for the restaurant, and the assigning of delivery executives is done by the algorithm of the app. The Swiggy app assigned Mudassir who was to deliver the food and this provoked Ajay to revert with a taunt and a call to Swiggy's customer executive.
