Shaadi.com removes skin tone filter, after being questioned by a user (www.bbc.com)

Hetal Lakhani from Dallas, USA, started an online petition against the option, which led to the company removing it.

She started it after speaking to another user, who questioned the filter in light of anti-racism protests.

Shaadi.com says the filter “was not serving any purpose” and was a “product debris we missed removing”.
