Zeeshan applied for a job in Mumbai's Hare Krishna Exports, a diamond export company. Police have filed a FIR against the company after Zeeshan's complaint. “Along with a bunch of friends, I forwarded my resume to diamond export company Hare Krishna Exports Pvt. Ltd. Almost half of them were immediately placed. I got a reply within 20 minutes of my application. I was shocked when I read it,” said Zeeshan, a MBA graduate told a newspaper. “Initially, I thought it was a joke. Had they wanted to reject my application they could have given other excuses…,” he said. “Thanks for your application. We regret to inform you that we hire only non-Muslim candidates,” was the reply he received. Zeeshan took up the issue of facing religious discrimination on Facebook and evoked heavy criticism against the company. On Wednesday, he received a “regret” e-mail by a senior executive of the company. “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.

Heartiest sympathy with this guy. This should't be criteria to select / reject someone. However a sincere advise to this guy as well. Look at his email id "zeeshankhan786". Despite he has done his masters in business administration, he still didn't learn the art of keeping religion and professionalism. I've rejected CVs of many candidates (for Software Engineer) in my life because their email id were unproffesioanl like cute_priya [at] blahblah.com, sunny.yaaronkayaar, ranjit456546846, shree_shree_prakash and the worst ifcuku [at] blahblah.com. Email address should be professional like only firstname and last name. But he is sounding like staunch religious (whether he is or not)
