Bharti Walmart in Serious Trouble

This is a matter that will cost Barthi Walmart business, reputation and possible eviction from hyderabad.

It is better if Bharti + Walmart come to sense and offer 50 - 60% jobs to Muslims residing in hyderabad.

Re: Bharti Walmart in Serious trouble

With this suggestion Walmart will again come under a cloud of unequal opportunities,giving preference to Muslims or any community.
Walmart recruits solely on basis of merit,like other US companies.
The unfortunate thing for Muslims is that they have less representation even in top educational institutions like IIT,IIm etc.
Leave alone Walmart,even the institutions opened for minorities (like Deccan college,Shadaan etc) are showing disfavour to Muslims and admitting non Muslims.
First correct these people and then point fingers at Walmart,who have not given any undertaking to take up the job of providing jobs to any community.

Reply to: "ADVERTS" - Thanks for Dawa, Plz give more time here.

Salaam,

May Allah bless you with all which is best for you for this world and for the Aqira ...Ameen.

Excellent pick, decent way & concluded comment ... great.

I request other intellect viewers to share their expertise for the sake of Allah and earn good deeds. This forum can serve a lot especially the Muslims of our region & the rest, Insha'Allah.

Finally, I request to all Muslims (practicing or non-practicing) must adopt a procedure to listen lectures daily. Insha'Allah soon their status of IMAN will increase, could understand the world today & achive success.

Incorrect information

If you check the entire staff ,you will realise that the figure given reveals one side of the story.
a)How many applicants were Muslim from the total number of applicants.
b)How many fulfilled the criteria of fluently knowing English,Hindi& Telugu,necessary for a sales person.

Besides the housekeeping is managed by Muslims,the employment of which has not been taken into consideration.

In case any Muslim having the full criteria has been rejected,then surely a case can be made for discrimination.

Lame excuse

Hey listen, Muslims constitute 40% in Hyderabad and most of them own small businesses, unlike Hindus who have quotas in govt jobs. So Muslims are more affected if Walmart is allowed to open branches in Hyderabad. Secondly, if you know how Wal-Mart functions they hire employees from local communities and train them in necessary skills if needed to so that the local communities will not have any adverse effect from Wal-Mart taking away their livelihood. First of all the excuse that there are not many English speaking Muslims in Hyderabad is just rubbish, Muslims in Hyderabad have good literacy rate than even Hindus nationally, Secondly you think Walmart in China have English speaking people ? Did the Walmart advertise its job requirements in local news papers like Siasat and DC ? In north India Walmart is going to villagers and training them befire hiring, and I think Muslim in Hyderabad are more qualified then them. Did Walmart mention that they are an equal opportunity employer and encourage minorities to apply (because Muslims have bad experience when applying jobs with local employers) ? Muslims need equal opportunities.

just get out of hindustan

just get out of hindustan

Walmart are not fools

Walmart is desirous of doing business in India.
He does not want his store broken in case some fool in USA/Europe makes unflattering comments on Islam.
The reason that no major enterprise desires to open any venture in old city because they don't want their stores ransacked.
As for advertising in Siasat for jobs,less said the better.
Walmart jobs were advertised in DC,Times of India & Hindu newspapers.

ADVERTS

Dear Zahid

Do you want your kids and family to see this adverts you posting on your website eg:meet mature women etc,with indecent photos. Pls. ask your self a question,what if my family acts on that adverts. And if anybody acts on that you will also get bad deeds in yours account so just count how many you already have,and that can lead you strait to hell. Iam just concern because i think your muslim. Pls. take care.

Hit where it hurts

All these Indian software companies actually work on US or European projects if these Indian softwrae companies discriminating against Muslims (if the Muslims % is less then 20) then you can write to its US or European partners (to their HR or ethics department), then next time when the Indian company bid for the contract they will raise the issue of equal apportunity for all in jobs at their work place, and if they refuse they might end up loosing the contract. This goes true for all the Indian companies working on US and European projects in any field.

Walmart

Walmart is an equal apportunity employer, they are very particular abour racism at work place, because any person or group can sue them in US courts if they are being discriminated in jobs at Walmart. In the past Walmart faces losses in millions due to law suits. The discrimination against Muslims in India is due to the racist mentality of Hindus who are managing Walmart here. If few of us write to Walmart in India and US this issue will be solved in no time because Walmart know the consequence of ignoring racism at Walmart. When you write give the example of their Hyderabad outself as well.

Employment in software companies

What is the employment ratio in software companies? Or at call centres in Hyderabad/Secunderabad?
The rate of hiring by non Muslim companies of Muslims is approx 2%(same as in govt jobs)
However,Muslim run enterprises hire close to 75-80% Muslims.
Therefore rather than run after non Muslims for jobs,we should encourage our Muslim brothers to open more establishments& thus jobs for our people.
Even Saudi Arabia prefers Muslims for jobs.In case Muslims are not available,opportunity is given to nonMuslims.

Peaceful Protest in front of Walmart

We are planning for a peaceful protest in front of walmart with 1000 people or more. We will have large banners and posters and we will post these on social media. Please make sure you bring 50 or more friends with you. Remember, we must make this a peaceful and we have brothers with video cameras recording for anyone trying to cause mischef. We will have a large younger team with cameras all over secretly recording, so be on the look out for RSS elements.

What is the agenda

What are you objecting against.
Walmart or not recruitment of Muslims??
What is the stand of MIM as far as Walmart is concerned.

Shame on Bharti Walmart & Jain's

If they dont like to offer jobs to Muslims than they should leave hyderabad. You barely started in hyderabad and already involved in bias against muslims. Muslims should boycott walmart all togather and file case of descrimination...

Racism in jobs

Just write to top management about the discrimination in Walmart, India and every thing will fall in its place, its the local junior level managers who are racists.

Re:Discrimination Against Muslims

There is no discrimination against Muslim being hire by a none Muslim.
All drivers etc,plumbers ,electric boy are muslim.
Even in bank officer are Muslim.
Even collector of hyd is a Muslim man.
When talent Muslim is hired.
Muslim poor in English and Walmart wnts good English speakers.

dISCRIMINATION

Why then only 4 boys out of 200 hired?

Discrimination against Muslims

Walmart policy of hiring is based on equal apportunity, its must be its local managers who are Hindu racists doing discrimination againt Muslims. But with Walmart its easy to solve the problem, just write to their director in India and in US the discriminating managers would be removed and they will hire Muslims with equal propotion. Else Muslims can sue Walmart in US courts for discrimination. Can some can get the email and contact information for Walmart management in India and US and post here so everyone can write to them about this issue.

all small kirana stores

all small kirana stores going to close, welcome to more unemployment, but one thing everybody going to talk, what's that, people are more excited to apply job in walmart, what a great thinking........but I like the concept, you go and buy Rs.55 vegetable that Rs.55/- will come to US immediately, but only one dollar, and money is coming to US from every where, shuuuuuuuuuuuuu,,.....dont say like that say it resession, and so see with your own eyes, how Mutaiyah, Ashok, yousuf bhai, shankar anna, jaffer bhai going to suffer in future.

No small Kirana stores is going to be closed.

With Walmart making its entry in Hyd, there is a false notion in the minds of few that small kirana stores are going to be effected, let me make it clear that, no small kirana stores is going to be closed with entry of such MNC`s, When Metro came up in Kukatpally everyone was of the view that Kirana stores will be effected, but nothing of that sort happened, in fact it is these small kirana stores who are much benefited with such wholesale shops, kirana stores owners buy the fast moving items on daily basis from such wholesale shops and sell it in retail making a hugh profit, and increase in turnover.

Makes Sense

Its shows how racist the hiring people were , dont deny racism , its always been here and its growing. Same goes for Muslim companies too( there arent many) they will definetly hire or prefer muslims to work for them.
You dont expect this from Walmart in canada or US but once in India, they start smelling of the same shit that majority Indians are.

Halal meat

This would be interesting to know whether they supply halal meat products in Hyderabad .

They might. The halal with

They might. The halal with jhatka and bismillah on tape-recorders. That is halal as per our new muftis from saudi arabia.

Why target Saudi Arabia?

Dear Bro. This is totally not correct that you are pointing arab (esp. saudi arab) where Allah Subhana has selected to send Jibrail with his Holy Quran, this is the place where our beloved NAbi (saws) was born and lived and died, this is the place from where our four imams learned and moved to respective places for Dawah, this is only place now where shops are closed during 5 Prayers, this is the place where women goes out with full veil / Burqa,,,,Why don't you people open your eyes and see that this is the place where we wish to travel in our life time for HAjj, Umrah and Ziyarat, this is the place where the best Masjids are situated....PLEASE FOR THE SAKE OF ALMIGHT ALLAH BEHAVE LIKE A HUMAN BEING.

Sick News

Pathetic piece of Journalism being promoted by Siasat. Are they encouraging communal harmony by printing this news ? Where was Siasat when Bharti Walmart was hiring ? Maybe Siasat should start checking all business establishments, including political parties, to check how many Muslims are on their payroll.
Grow Up Siasat Team... Hope to see more maturity when a news article is printed.

Bharati Wall Mart is !

Can you let us know, how many non-muslim are working with you ! To be fact, you alawys try to proof some thing from nothing in the name of religion.

If you realy wish to help muslims, you can do much better things. But only when you change your idea of this adversting tactis for fame.

NAME THE KUFIRS

Who are these 7 Muslim kufirs wagging their tails before US companies.

your brothers

they are your brothers only....and if they are kafirs then you must be a Fakir definitely

Better a fakir than a kufir

I would definitely be a fakir than a kufir.
It is definitely for a poor Muslim girl to be a concubine of a rich Muslim rather than be a legally wedded wife of a kufir.
I invite comments from Muslim scholars whether Muslims can serve the US companies.

Reply to: Better a fakir than a kufir {For:Can Muslims serve ..}

Salaam,

Yes Muslims can serve and if you go back to the only best period of time i.e. Huzoor sas period.
The Muslims do worked in Ahle-kitab & Pigeons business centers. In any case search in google & U-tube.

Insha'allah you will be happy to have a lot of satisfactory information/s from Muslim scholars end.
Jazakallah hu khair,
A Muslim.

Surprising indeed

After the abuses hurled on USA by Muslims,really Walmart has shown largess in recruiting Muslims.Even surprising that major shareholders are Jews.

Foolish Article

Does Siasat is creating a religious phobia in the employment sector, why always news is published on religious lines, is it required to say that out of 200 employees only 7 Muslims are there... why. Can the Siasat Management Publish the number of other than muslim community persons are employed in Siasat press. It is looks very ugly when we read such articles. We expect that in future they will raise above such publicity stunts and work for the betterment of poor and mankind in large.

Bharati Wall Mart is

Bharati Wall Mart is following the AP state Govt reservation policy. 3.5%, very sad.

The indian IT companies, also follow the same reservation policy, on it overseas projects. 1 out of 30, will be a Muslim candidate.

hello

no need to mention ... out of 200 only 7 are muslims!! what message are your trying to pass!!

Re:hello

The message being passed that in a company hiring only on merit only 7 Muslims in 400 have managed to get across.
They are showing that the level of Muslims has fallen backward over the years listening to the stupid Mullahs.
