If you were active on Twitter yesterday, you would know that #BoycottMakeMyTrip was trending on the micro-blogging site. People were posting screenshots while they uninstalled MakeMyTrip. Why? Because of a tweet by co-founder of the app on beef ban. Yes, you read it right.

The co-founder of MakeMyTrip Keyur Joshi found himself in a controversy after he expressed his views over the beef ban by the central government. He said that even though he is a vegetarian and a Narendra Modi-supporter, he did not like the way the government is controlling what people can or cannot wat.

He tweeted –

‘#beefban I am a strong supporter of @narendramodi & a vegetarian for life. But i will now eat beef only in India to support freedom for food’

‘#beefban If Hinduism takes away right of choice of food, I rather not be a Hindu. @narendramodi @BJP4India can’t decide what people eat’

The tweets created an outrage on Twitter, and soon people started boycotting MakeMyTrip. So much so, that the company actually had to intervene and give an official statement saying that the views expressed by Joshi are his personal, and that he is not associated with the company anymore.

Well, beef ban is a hot topic in India currently, and while you might be hearing a lot about the same, here’s what followed on Twitter after Joshi’s tweets.

Hours later, when Joshi found himself in a scoop, he took to Twitter to apologise, and later deleted his account. He tweeted –

‘The views expressed in my tweets regarding #beefban were my personal thoughts only. I deeply regret any unintentional inconvenience’

‘or hurt cause to anybody. I sincerely apologise for this and withdraw my comments unconditionally’
