Ajay Gautam started his website Ham Hindu in the year 2015. According to his website, its motive is to create Hindu religion superior among all and also to create “Hindu Rashtra.”
This video clip of stupidity shown by Ajay Gautam became viral on the social media where people tremendously started trolling on his childish as well as foolish behaviour.

After the video became viral in social media, promoter of News 24, Anuradha Prasad also condemned this move by Ajay Gautam. Anuradha Prasad wrote – “we at the newsroom of @news24tvchannel are in shock at the inappropriate & condemnable behaviour of Mr Ajay Gautam. Ethics of journalism do not allow to give a platform to such divisive voices & gestures. @news24tvchannel has decided not to invite Mr Ajay Gautam to its studio .”
This whole incident was related to the debate on Zomato food delivery controversy. In this incident, the founder and CEO of Zomato also gave his statement which won the internet.
