The image was a reference to the 2015 order by the then President of India, Dr Pranab Mukherjee which banned beef in Maharashtra. The bill banned the slaughter of all cattle with exception of water buffaloes. Apparently, the roast beef was one of their most popular items on the menu which was banned post the beef ban.

Imbiss got called out by people that the reference to ‘beef’ has hurt their religious sentiments and that this politicisation of food was uncalled for.
