While many on social media were outraged, others found the perfect opportunity to turn the controversial tweet into an overnight meme.

A tweet by a man who claims to be associated with the Vishwa Hindu Parishad had gone viral on Friday and triggered a huge debate after he claimed that he had cancelled his Ola cab ride because the driver assigned to him was Muslim.

Abhishek Mishra, who describes himself as a "Hindutva thinker", said that he had cancelled the cab ride on April 20 because he did not want to give his money to "Jihadi" people. Along with the tweet, he attached a screenshot of the cancelled cab ride, which showed that the name of the driver was Masood Alam.
