Mumbai: Within 48 hours of making promise personally to the Editor of IndiaTomorrow.net, Gujarat’s eminent businessman Zafar Sareshwala today called MBA graduate Zeeshan Ali Khan and his two Hindu friends to Taj Lands End in Mumbai for a formal job interview. After a brief meeting, Omkar Bansode and Mukund Manmohan Pandey were given job letter as Management Trainees with Parsoli Motor Works Ltd. The two had declined the job offer of a Mumbai firm when it denied job to Zeeshan on his being a Muslim.
“I have met them personally and mailed them the job offer which I also offered them personally,” Sareshwala, CEO & MD, Parsoli Corp, told IndiaTomorrow.net.
On Sunday evening, IndiaTomorrow.net Editor Mumtaz Alam had tweeted Sareshwala asking him when Zeeshan Ali Khan has been hired by Adani Group, shouldn’t he offer job to Zeeshan’s two Hindu friends who stood by Zeeshan when he was denied job by a Mumbai firm on religious ground? Within minutes, Sareshwala responded positively and said: “Yes we are ready to employ Zeeshan’s 2 Friends who stood by him and have set a glaring example of togetherness & oneness”.

After their meeting with Sareshwala at hotel Taj Lands End in Mumbai today, Zeeshan told IndiaTomorrow.net: “Here at Taj Lands End with Mr Zafar Sareshwala, Mukund and Omkar. My friends Omkar and Mukund have now been hired as Management Trainees with Parsoli Motor Works Ltd.”
Mukund also confirmed it to IndiaTomorrow.net: “Hello sir we got an offer From Zafar Sareshwala sir.”
Zeeshan had applied for job at the multi-billion Hare Krishna Exports Pvt. Ltd on 19th May evening. Within 15 minutes, he got a one-line cold reply from the company.
“Dear Zeeshan, Thanks for your application. We regret to inform you that we hire only Non-Muslim candidates.”
But the company offered job to Zeeshan’s two Hindu friends who had applied along with him. In protest against the biased behaviour of the company, the two friends declined the job offer and stood by Zeeshan.
