In a case that is receiving widespread coverage for discrimination both nationally and internationally, a young man was rejected for a job by Hari Krishna Exports Pvt Ltd which told him it hired "only non-Muslim candidates". Khan and his friends put out a screenshot of the mail on social media and it went viral and is now trending on Twitter.
Khan reported the case to Mumbai police and it has been registered against the company under a law on national integration. If found guilty, a person can be jailed for up to three years.
