"I have crossed a line which I deeply regret," Jawwad Kadir, CEO of Creative Chaos wrote in the email, a copy of which was provided to Dawn.com by a source. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
"I have jeopardised the image of Creative Chaos and tarnished its reputation due to my inability to act in accordance with the ethos of [the company] and moral code of human decency," he added. "The buck stops at the CEO." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Earlier today, Kadir was asked to resign from Creative Chaos, a #Karachi
based software house, after a newly recruited female employee was told to either stop wearing her hijab at work or leave.
The incident came to light through a Facebook post which detailed how the female recruit, just a few days into her employment with #CreativeChaos
, was told by her line manager that she could keep her job only if she would take off her hijab.
The said person told Dawn.com that the implication was that her wearing the hijab would spoil the company’s image as an "all-embracing" workplace.
