The grand opening of Lulu Mall has taken place in Lucknow. The mall was inaugurated by CM Yogi Adityanath. Lulu Mall, built on 11 acres at a cost of 2 thousand crores, is also being called the biggest mall in UP. At the same time, with the opening, a controversy has also erupted regarding Lulu Mall. After some youths offered Namaz in the mall, there was a dispute over Hindu organizations reading Sundarkand in the mall.
Amidst all this, a post about Lulu Mall is going viral on social media. It is being claimed in this post that 90 percent of the employees of Lulu Mall are Muslim boys, while 100 percent of the female employees are Hindu girls. One user wrote – “90% boys *Muslim* and 100% girls working in 11 acres of North India’s largest and country’s fifth *Lulu Mall* opened 3 days ago in Lucknow at a cost of two thousand crores “Hindu “Lulu is owned by M A Yusuf Ali of Kerala l #Love_Jihad @Lawyer_Kalpana @iSinghApurva @HJSHindi”(Translates Hindi)
