Local coffee shop and cafe Espresso was at the centre of a social media flurry on Sunday, following an online protest led by an irate diner who claimed she was denied space to pray inside the cafe’s premises.
While those in support of the diner launched a protest across Facebook calling for the waiter who dealt with the diner to be fired, Twitter users were quick to come to Espresso’s defence, condemning the protest.
Ok so the aunty is making fuss of not getting a place to pray but what exactly was she doing at #Espresso in roza timing?
#Espresso Religiosity within Pakistani elite is the most hypocritical and ugly thing I have ever seen in my life
Just read about the #Espresso incident. If I remember correctly, they had a space for praying under the stairs last year.
Whats the big deal if there wasn’t a place to pray? Use the chair ppl! my work place doesnt have praying area am I protesting? no? #Espresso
What’s wrong with twitter? 2loony men have screamed defamation, people are obsessing over the #espresso incident. Stop taking it seriously.
And I’m going to say it again: Leave #Espresso alone!!
I personally think #espresso was just afraid that veena malik might pop in to pray now that Hero TV won’t let her.
There is a prayer area at #Espresso it’s called a chair. U face it towards qibla and pray. No one will stop u.
I went to Pizza Hut this morning at 3am for sehri and they were shut!! I demand an apology & ask them to open so I can eat. #espresso
