A picture of a pack of Beef flavoured Maggi Noodles is making rounds on social media and it has been claimed that this new flavour of Maggi noodles has been launched in India.
Tha caption in Hindi read: “नई मैगी गोमांस फ्लेवर में ❌❌🚫🚫
मैगी का बहिष्कार करो भाईयो गाय के मास से मैगी बन रही है,
सभी हिन्दू समुदाय इसका विरोध व बहिस्कार करे।
इस मैगी को बंन्द करके ही दम लेगे ❌🚫”
(Translation: New Maggie in beef flavour. Boycott Maggie brothers, Maggie is being made by cow’s mass. All Hindu community should oppose and oppose it. You will be able to stop this maggie)
