Morton Grove, Ill. (Dec. 1, 2020) — The Indian American Muslim Council (IAMC), an advocacy group dedicated to safeguarding India’s pluralist and tolerant ethos, has condemned an increasing pattern of discrimination against Muslims at Indian American IT companies.
The now infamous incident at Nityo Infotech is one example of blatant expression of bigotry against Muslims, driven by Hindu nationalist narratives and Islamophobic stereotypes.
However its alleged attempt to discriminate against Muslims are part of a larger malaise of brazen Islamophobia in Indian American IT companies.
“A scrutiny of the hiring practices of Indian American IT companies is long overdue,” Ahmed said.
Indian American Muslim Council is the largest advocacy organization of Indian Muslims in the United States with chapters across the nation.
