The organization is as of now confronting the rage of the nation's eaterati for barring pork and meat items from its menu as for India's religious estimations; the India release of the Whopper is accessible in vegan, chicken and Mutton alternatives.

The site is putting forth to convey vouchers for the above trinity anyplace in the nation (with free dispatching), valued at Rs 128. You even get a free T-shirt when you turn up to reclaim your voucher. Furthermore that is the manner by which the bread disintegrates.
