  We have been told that Maggi has been pulled off shelves because it has too much lead, or MSG, or whatever. But what is the real reason behind Maggi’s troubles?  Doing the rounds on WhatsApp The dark underbelly of social media, and bombastic TV screens, have come up with some of the most hilarious theories and claims. Here, we get you some of the  best ones.   1. Baba Ramdev is going to launch Herbal Maggi Following FakingNews’ hilarious satirical article that Maggi lover’s have asked Baba Ramdev to come up with Herbal Maggi, one of the funny conspiracy theories, thanks to Haridwar FDA being one of the main protagonists in the Maggi drama, is that the government is cracking down on Maggi to help out the yoga baba in his next business venture: Ayurvedic Noodles. We wonder how the Patanjali Yogpeeth, Ramdev’s empire headquartered in Haridwar, would serve the noodles. Perhaps with a seasoning of putrajeevak beej?   2. India wants to arm-twist the Swiss government Since the evil Swiss banks are being seen as stonewalling Indian government’s quest to bring black money back to India, the government came up with an even more evil plan. Let’s target one of Switzerland’s biggest business conglomerates – Nestle. When we pull down their multi-billion dollar noodles business in India, they will come scampering back to us with the black money on a platter. Brilliant.   3. Gujarat based Ching’s wants to take over the market So the other theory is that desi noodles brand Chings which has two of its three manufacturing facilities in Gujarat is pulling its new found strings at the centre to bring down the multinational so that it can ramp up its business across the country. Only if Modi had advertised Chings and not Jassuben’s Pizza…   4. But the most plausible reason is... Arnab Goswami and Rahul Shivshankar powered their news arsenals and brought down the multinational to its knees. At least, that’s what their channel’s claim.
