"#beefban If Hinduism takes away right of choice of food, I rather not be a Hindu. @narendramodi @BJP4India can't decide what people eat," read one tweet.

There were some tweets in support of him as well.
 
Make My Trip distanced themselves from Mr Joshi's views and said he was not a current employee of the company.
 
But many on Twitter pointed out that Keyur Joshi was still listed as part of the board directors on the company's website. The website says Keyur Joshi is the Co-Founder and Chief Strategic Advisor at Make My Trip.
