- A bakery chain employee in Pakistan refused to write Merry Christmas on the cake
- After being pulled up on social media, he shunned the matter of investigation
- Company Claim – We do not discriminate on the basis of religion and caste
An employee of Pakistan’s famous bakery chain refused to write ‘Merry Christmas’ on the cake. After this, when his behavior started being criticized on social media, the bakery management has announced to investigate the whole matter. The bakery chain has also clarified that it does not discriminate on the basis of religion.
Bakery Management is investigating
The management of Delegia Bakery said on social media that it was investigating allegations made in a Facebook post by a female customer named Celesia Naseem Khan. Khan had alleged that he had brought the cake from the Defense Housing Society shop in Karachi but his employee refused to write ‘Merry Christmas’ on it.
The employee said – I am not authorized
The employee probably told the female customer that she was not authorized to write as she had received the order from the kitchen. There was an uproar on social media regarding this incident and many people expressed shock and outrage over the incident.
Company bid – we do not discriminate between religion and caste
The management of the bakery clarified that this is clearly an act of one person and we do not discriminate on the basis of religion and caste. At this time we are taking action against him (accused personnel). This he did in a personal capacity and it is not company policy. It is noteworthy that in the year 2018 also, a bakery employee had refused to give a cake written ‘Merry Christmas’ to a woman and said that it is the company’s instruction.
Is this the Riyasat-e-Madina of Imran?
Religious fanaticism has increased in Pakistan ever since Prime Minister Imran Khan came to power. Murders in the name of blasphemy, fundamentalists pressurizing the country to decide the foreign policy in the name of religion are a direct example of this. Not only this, Imran Khan himself has always kneeled before these fundamentalists. Just in October, five policemen were killed in violence by supporters of the banned radical outfit Tehreek-e-Labbaik Pakistan. Later, the Imran government, withdrawing the case against these miscreants, wrote to everyone.
