Looks pretty upsetting, right?That wasn't the only position which had the "Those in the Muslim faith need not apply".
Out of the 15 positions offered, four specified that Muslims need not apply. The other three positions are Quality Assurance Manager, Marketing Manager, Accounts Executive
Some bloggers chose to get very, very upset. All kinds of stuff spewed out of their post. " a new kind of low", "undeclared racism" etc
There was even a mention of "social contract".
Someone in Promuda-s yahoogroup was also upset and he posted it on the group.
Josh Hong, who is one of Malaysiakini's contributor, read the mail and took the trouble to call MetroKajang at 03 - 8737 2323 and spoke to the Human Resource Department to clarify why they did not want a Muslim candidate.
It turns out that the office is located in Batang Berjuntai, near a pig slaughter house. And the successful candidate will be dealing with pig farmers as well about housing development there.
there is a job posting over at jobstreet. it does not mention who need not apply, but it does state that the position is in an abattoir, as in pig slaughterhouse.
Remember Steven Covey's 10/90 principle? 10% of life is made up of what happens to you. 90% of life is decided by how you react.
Lulu wonders, if Josh had not called MetroKajang, would Lulu have been like those bloggers, and thought the worse of Metro Kajang? How would Lulu have reacted?
