Public Asks to Boycott Savour Foods After Its Employees Manhandle Govt Officials

The owners of Savour Foods in Blue Area Islamabad were allegedly involved in manhandling government officials, including Environmental Protection Agency Director-General, Farzana Altaf, and Joint Secretary of Ministry of Climate Change, Hammad Shamimi.

The video of the incident surfaced on social media where the staff and management of the famous food chain tried to kick out the joint team which visited the restaurant for an inspection.

According to details, Savour Foods was violating the ban imposed on plastic recently. The famous Pulao Kebab food outlet is still using plastic bags for packing its food items, despite a complete ban on the use of plastic announced by the Ministry of Climate Change which came into effect on August 14. However, a number of restaurants and local shop owners are resisting the ban considering they have been using plastic shopping bags for decades.

The local administration has imposed a fine of Rs 0.2 million while sealing the restaurant for violating the ban.

According to Deputy Commissioner Islamabad, the culprits have been taken into custody for manhandling government officials.

The incident has prompted the social media users to call for boycotting Savour Foods for their shameful behavior. The hashtag #BoycottSavourFoods was trending on Twitter post the incident.

The people are appreciating the quick response by the Islamabad administration.

Others agreed on the plastic ban, but not on boycotting a famous restaurant.

  • What a country we are, get a life dudes. Rupee 2lacs BAN is just skin(chilka) for Savour Foods, they should have been fined separately for Abusing and Threatening Woman and her Crew with at least 20 to 30 lacs in addition to some period in jail without parole along with the ban on doing business for at least 3 months.
    The humiliation of woman is intolerable at all costs.
    They should be convicted of terrorism as if the Govt officials would have reacted, someone could have lost his/her life.

  • Who really eat the crap sold there. There have been incidents of lizards and cockroaches in food served there

  • A fine of 2 lac and one month penalty won’t do shit to them. These educated jahils should learn their lesson and such a meagre plan won’t do shit. The government should take heavy action against the whole savour franchise and impose a fan of at least 20 lacs. They not only disrespected the officials but also blatantly refused to follow Gov’t’s policy to avoid damage to the climate.

  • Why to boycott ? Alcohol is BAN but ever RAIDED in AVARI, PC etc and imposed BAN ? go get a life .. TALK sensible social media and have sense first.

  • SAVOUR IS BEING TARGETED FR SELLING FOOD AT LESSER COST THEN OTHERS….MOREOVER IF FINED GOOD ENOUGH THEY WIL COMPLAY STIL OTHER AREAS NED MORE ATTENTION THEN PLASTIC BAGS….
