Aaman Khan was harassed mentally by his manager Kishore Kotecha for wearing ‘religious attire’ and for his religious practises in office. The manager said that it was against the company policy when Khan defended that it was his constitutional right to practise his religion. Although there was no such policy of the company in reality.

After continuous harassment and threats from the senior Manager Kotecha, Khan was forced to submit his resignation in the  month of June. But Khan however has written to the company at Canada regarding their policy and has so far not received any reply. In the meantime he has also sought intervention from the Labour Commission of India, collector of Pune and Human rights activists.

Aaman Khan is on a satyagraha from August 15th 2018 as he believes in the Gandhian method of passive resistance and is hopeful that justice will be done to him sooner or later. He is joined by many activists and supporters in his lone battle for his basic fundamental right which completes a month on 15th September 2018.
