High Drama On Vande Bharat Train As Staff, Angry Passenger Spar over halal-certified tea
A video of the incident has gone viral on social media where the passenger can be seen fuming over the word ‘halal’ while the staff tried to explain that the tea was vegetarian. The passenger in the video questioned the railway staff as to what halal-certified tea is and why it was being served during the month of sawan.
“Month of sawan is going. And you are giving us halal-certified tea?” the passenger asked the railway official. Examining the sachet, the officer asked, “What is that?”. “You know, you explain what halal-certified is. We should know it. We know ISI certificate, explain what is a halal certificate,” the passenger said.
“This is masala tea premix. Let me explain. This is 100% vegetarian,” the railways staff said. “But what is halal certified? I will have to do puja after this.” the passenger said. “Are you making a video?This is 100% vegeterian. Chai veg hi hota hai, sir,” the railways staff said.
“I don’t want any religious certification. Please keep these sentiments in mind. Put swastik certificate then,” the passenger said. “Okay, will keep that in mind,” the staff said.
