Biryani is considered as one of the most loved dishes of the sub-continent, with different types of biryani being sold in every corner of the street it is only justified for the people to campaign to get an emoji for it too.
The campaign started by MTV India gained instant support with around 800 university students in Delhi protesting on streets demanding WhatsApp to launch an emoticon for Biryani.

The reason for the protest was that the messaging service giant offers the usage of a variety of different food emoticons from burgers, pizza, sushi to tacos but missing from this list of emojis is food from the sub-continent cuisine.
A petition at change.org was signed by 42,000 demanding respect that Biryani deserves on the international platform.
Naturally, such news took Twitter by a storm and the hashtag #biryaniemoticon became an instant hit;
