New Delhi: Telecom giant Airtel was trolled after it accepted a woman's outrageous request for a Hindu customer service person. The exchange on Twitter enraged users. Among those who called out the company was former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah, who said he wouldn't "pay another penny to the company".

Airtel, responding to the angry posts, said in a statement: "We absolutely do not differentiate between customers, employees and partners on the basis of caste or religion."

The woman, whose Twitter handle declares her as a management professional, a "Proud Indian" and a "Proud Hindu", had complained about a service engineer. Within minutes, her exchange with Airtel was in wide circulation.
