A man named Seelam Veerapa Naidu created an uproar on micro blogging website Twitter after asking cab service Ola to provide a 'Hindu' cab driver'.
@SVeerapaNaidu Sorry, we do not discriminate against our drivers on the basis of their religion.

Not only was he met with the wrath of angry twitter users over the bizarre request, the cab service also gave him a befitting reply.
@Olacabs Why Shld we see it as Discrimination instead of Customer Preference.

@Olacabs @SVeerapaNaidu why should they see you as a customer instead of a giant conservative pig

@SVeerapaNaidu @Olacabs Someday. Someday, no driver may want any Naidus to board their car out of some weird & twisted logic, like yours.

Ola's competitor cab providing service Uber also acknowledged their response on Twitter.
