Delhi Restaurant Denies Entry To A Woman Dressed In Saree; Viral Video Leaves Twitterati Furious

[ad_1]

With the Indian government easing the lockdown restrictions and allowing restaurants to welcome customers, a viral video of a Delhi eatery denying entry to a woman dressed in a saree has left many Twitter users fuming. With more and more netizens joining the conversation and sharing their opinion, the restaurant policy is being slammed for not recognising saree as a part of ‘smart casual wear’.

The concerned video that has grabbed everyone’s attention highlights the restaurant staff denying entry to the woman dressed in a saree. “Ma’am, we allow only smart casuals, and saree does not come under smart casuals. That’s it,” a female staff member responds when quizzed about the restaurant policy.

Twitter user Anita Choudary shared the clip on the microblogging site, earlier this week, and within no time it grabbed everyone’s attention. While one slammed the restaurant for not acknowledging Indian traditional wear, another user shared her experience of donning a saree to fancy restaurants in foreign countries.

As the saree row gained momentum, the concerned restaurant responded to the controversy by posting a clarification statement on their respective social media handle. “Nowhere in our company policy does it say that we will refuse entry to anybody in ethnic wear,” read the statement.

The restaurant authorities even shared the CCTV footage of the woman slapping the manager and wrote, “What unfolded after was beyond our imagination, with the guest slapping our manager.”
