Chef angers Muslims with comments

Atul Kochhar, a famous chef based in Saudi Arabia, recently made a tweet that has offended Muslims.  "It is sad to see that you (Priyanka Chopra) have not respected the sentiments of Hindus who have been terrorized by Islam over 2000 years. Shame on you,” he tweeted.

This particular tweet angered his Muslim customers, many of whom have since boycotted his restaurant.  There were even fanatical threats against him.  

Following the backlash, Atul said, "There is no justification for my tweet, a major error made in the heat of the moment.  I fully recognise my inaccuracies that Islam was founded around 1400 years ago and I sincerely apologise.  I am not Islamophobic, I deeply regret my comments that have offended many."

He further added, "I have let myself and my colleagues down."
