This Man Cancelled His Ola Cab Because The Driver Was A Muslim And Twitter Users Did Their Job
A passenger canceled his Ola cab since the driver was a Muslim and he smugly shared it on Twitter. The passenger bigheadedly shared the screenshot on Twitter but like always our great Twitter users did their job.

Before anyone, here is what Ola replied to his remark.
Ola, like our country, is a secular platform, and we don't discriminate our driver partners or customers basis their caste, religion, gender or creed. We urge all our customers and driver partners to treat each other with respect at all times.
— Ola (@Olacabs) April 22, 2018
Now here is what Twitter had to say on his remark.
Canceled an Ola Cab booking today because driver’s name was Mahendra Singh Dhoni and he accepts only credit no cash.😛

Hi @ola_supports can you please block this user from your portal as he is encouraging religious discrimination and spreading hate against Muslims?

Canceled my Ola Cab because driver's name was bumrah and he was crossing lines. #MIvRR

This Ola incident reminds me of the several times cab drivers have canceled the ride after asking me my drop address. Some say it is coz it is a congested area, others have directly said: Wouldn't go to a Mohammedan (Muslim) area.
— Ashwaq Masoodi (@ashwaqM) April 23, 2018
Once a driver said sorry wouldn't go to a Muslim area coz it is Navratra & I don't want to see non veg everywhere.
Fair enough, but then going by that logic Muslims shouldnt even step out during Ramzan coz the world around doesnt stop eating what they eat just coz we are fasting
— Ashwaq Masoodi (@ashwaqM) April 23, 2018
Cancelled an Ola cab because driver's name was Achhe Din and it's been 4 years now and he's still not here.

Varun Dhawan In And As Salman Khan In His Biopic, Here’s What The Actor Has To Say
Among the young generation stars it is Varun Dhawan who shares a great equation with Salman Khan and his family, courtesy his dad David Dhawan. Varun Dhawan has an immense respect for the senior Actor whom he calls ‘Bhai’. In fact, there are many likenesses between them. So we won’t be surprised if Varun ever plays Salman Khan in his biopic film.
In the upcoming time, we will have a biopic movie on Sanjay Dutt who had a thought-provoking life. Ranbir Kapoor will essay Sanjay Dutt in his biopic. Alike Sanjay Dutt his good friend Salman Khan too has a controversial life. From his court cases to his love life, Salman Khan has always managed to be in news. Even for some good reasons such as assisting others and dominating the box office.
In recent times Salman Khan was sentenced 5 years in jail in the blackbuck poaching case. However, the Actor got bailed but he spent two nights in the central jail of Jodhpur. Varun Dhawan among other celebs was the first one to meet the Actor at Galaxy Apartment in Mumbai. In an interaction with media for the promotion of his upcoming October Varun revealed that he is glad as Bhai is back home.
In an interaction with media, he said “Everyone is relieved. I said this earlier in a tweet that he and his family really value, respect and believe in the judiciary and they will go about it in the best legal way possible. But as someone who has a personal relationship with him, I am very happy that he’s home. I went to meet him yesterday and it’s really good to see him back”.
Varun was also questioned on essaying Salman Khan in his biopic but the Actor snubbed. He said, “No not right now, I think he will star in his own biopic movie”.
