Starbucks is the largest coffeehouse chain in the world. Tata Starbucks entered India in October 2012 as a joint venture between Starbucks Coffee Company and Tata Consumer Products Limited. It has more than 15 thousand branches just in USA, more than 1300 in Canada and more than 900 in Europe and 254 in India. People in India view it as a luxury. Starbucks outlets also offer a variety of snacks.
HJS spokesperson Ramesh Shinde shared a video of a Starbucks outlet located at New Delhi International Airport in which a woman is heard asking a Starbucks employee if the chicken they serve is halal. The Starbucks employee replies that it is halal.
Shocking to know…@StarbucksIndia serves Only #HALAL !!
Why is this Halal imposition on Hindus & other Non-Muslims ?
Do Hindus have No Freedom to Eat?
Protest against this Injustice !
Join #Anti_Halal Movement.https://t.co/kfH4F3XWFW@Aamitabh2 @Vishnu_Jain1 @KapilMishra_IND pic.twitter.com/3GrDMjSz2R

The woman then asks what options are available if a Hindu does not want to eat halal certified food. The employee is seen replying that only Halal certified food is available.
When the woman further questions the employee about halal certification, the employee goes on to say that ‘halal is what everyone uses. And that Hindus also eat halal’.
People are being misled by using FSSAI in this.
Also, at the end the woman asks, have you written anywhere that the products available with you are Halal. The employee only replies that they are following guidelines.
Starbucks is misleading Hindus and serving Halal on the sly. It is time Hindus stood up for their rights and demanded answers from Starbucks for this deceit.
