Man refuses to accept groceries from Muslim

A Mumbai resident refused to take delivery of the grocery items he ordered online from a Muslim delivery agent. The 51-year-old man has now been arrested. The accused was produced before a Thane court and sent to judicial custody. The incident took place on Tuesday when the 32-year-old Muslim delivery man went to deliver groceries at Srushti Complex home of the accused at Mira Road. "It's very shocking and saddening that people are focusing on religion in such difficult times. I have been risking my life delivering food items to homes," said the delivery man, a resident of Naya Nagar. The victim said he was wearing gloves and mask while delivering the essential items. As the delivery agent reached the home of the customer-the wife of the accused-she took delivery of the items. As the woman went through the list of items, the woman's husband asked the delivery man his name. After learning that the man was from a particular community, he asked his wife to return the order. The shocked delivery man recorded the conversation on his mobile phone. According to the victim, the accused allegedly told him that he did not want to order from the person of a minority community. Later, the delivery boy narrated the incident to his family who advised him to approach the police.
