Huge ruckus on advertising

Huge ruckus has started on Zomato's advertisement. Pujari M Sharma in Mahakaleshwar temple has given a statement on this and said, Zomato has hurt our sentiments with the advertisement. If there was any other society then Zomato would have set the company on fire. We are tolerant people so no action was taken. There should be an FIR in the matter. At the same time, Hindu Janajagruti Manch has also condemned the advertisement and objected, saying, Mahakal is not a servant who delivers food. God is he is worshipped.
