An unemployed MBA student named Zeshan Ali Khan applied for a job in Hare Krishna diamond company in Mumbai. Zeshan who was longing to get a job received mail from the company. Ali who was expecting a positive response was terribly shocked to see it quoting “Thanks for your application. We regret to inform you that we hire only non-Muslim candidates”. Disappointed with the response, Khan posted a screen shot of the company’s reply on Facebook. He said that the company has to say it straight if he is not eligible for a position offered by them and questioned why discrimination is being shown on religious grounds. “We would like to clarify that the company does not discriminate against candidates based on gender, caste, religion, etc. Any hurt caused in the matter is deeply regretted,” said Mahendra S. Deshmukh, Associate VP & Head-HR of the company. The incident has been reported by Zashen Ali to National Commission for Minorities.
