Talking about the post, Namita wrote, “Monday motivation - The comments on my barbeque insta post have been so interesting, shows such a lack of tolerance, I’m a vegetarian & teetotaller & have never tasted meat (that’s a choice, not some badge of honour I carry) but that doesn’t mean I disrespect those who eat it. However, whether it’s choices around food or then religion or gender I see lately that intolerance has reached new heights.”

“Every human should be respected regardless of their personal backgrounds & preferences, that’s what real education, evolution & freedom means to me. So the Monday motivation is - let’s love more, judge less,” she added.

Calling yourself vegetarian and asking someone to eat or cook in front of you .. I heard you saying I respect what other eat really... what about the life of those innocent creatures who died for taste and you are encouraging people to eat more... Delete this... If u have guts debate with me.” “Shark tank pe toh vegetarian hu bola tha? (but you said on Shark Tank India that you were a vegetarian),” added another. Someone also said, “What type of vegetarian you are. No, you aren't. I am going to unfollow you. Double standard people.”
