Wipro chairman Mr. Azim Premji's comment on Reservation


Azim Premji’s comment on reservation:

I think we should have job reservations in all the fields. I completely support the PM and all the politicians for promoting this. Let’s start the reservation with our cricket team. We should have 10 percent reservation for Muslims. 30 percent for OBC, SC /ST like that. Cricket rules should be modified accordingly.

The boundary circle should be reduced for an SC/ST player. The four hit by an OBC player should be considered as a six and a six hit by a OBC player should be counted as 8 runs. An OBC player scoring 60 runs should be declared as a century.

We should influence ICC and make rules so that the pace bowlers like Shoaib Akhtar should not bowl fast balls to our OBC player. Bowlers should bowl maximum speed of 80 kilometer per hour to an OBC player. Any delivery above this speed should be made illegal.
Also we should have reservation in Olympics. In the 100 meters race, an OBC player should be given a gold medal if he runs 80 meters.
There can be reservation in Government jobs also. Let’s recruit SC/ST and OBC pilots for aircrafts which are carrying the ministers and politicians (that can really help the country.. )

Ensure that only SC/ST and OBC doctors do the operations for the ministers and other politicians. (Another way of saving the country..)
Let’s be creative and think of ways and means to guide INDIA forward…
Let’s show the world that INDIA is a GREAT country. Let’s be proud of being an INDIAN..
May the good breed of politicians like ARJUN SINGH long live…


This message was spreading widely on popular blogs and social networking platforms. The message claiming to be that of Wipro Chairman Azim Premji’s comments looks like a taunt on Indian reservation system. The message started spreading after a call for reservations in private sector jobs.

Azim premji did oppose the reservations in Wipro. However, there is no credible source to confirm that the racistic statements in the post are from Azim Premji. These statements were never published in any newspaper or TV. So it is more likely that some people extended premji’s comments to frame this post.

Hoax or Fact:

Mixture of hoax and facts.
