    Restrictions to perform rituals at professional area by employer

    I belong to a typical Hindu family where practice of prayers too deities are performed. I also believe in doing so when get started with daily work in office by scenting a stick in front of deities.But recently our MD appointed a new GM who introduced new low according to which we cant practice such rituals as our company is foreign based.

    Hello,

    This is a silly excuse! You work in an MNC,that doesnot mean that you cant practice your own religion.The point is,now a days the offices are made centrally AC.There always remains a risk because of the fact that if little spark from the match stick or the agarbatti, may prove dangerous for the entire office.That little spark can catch the electric wires and can burn eveything.You can keep photo or small idol of the deity that you worship.But I will request you not to light any agarbatti.If any mishap takes place,then you will be held responsible for the entire episode.Light them at home,but not in office.

    Hi friend,
    You can practice your rituals any where. But don't light candles or starvation. Because these proved to be dangerous as most of offices now a days made of plastic walls.

    If they by mistake catch fire, it will be a disaster. To avoid that your MD may pass that rule as he is the person responsible for the safety measures.

    Hope this helps you..!

    Regards,
    BSR.

    The reason given by your GM for not allowing practice of rituals is very unlogical.

    There is nothing to do with weather the company is foreign based or Indian based, its about the believe and customs.

    According to me you may light agarbati in your home not in the office since your GM doesnot want it.

    You may keep a photo or a small idol of your deity in your office.

    The will be a risk in you light a agarbatti and if it causes any mishap then you will be totally responsible so it is better to avoid such risk.

    Dear Aspirant,

    You are supposed to follow the administration of your office.But here your new GM is not following the principles of Indian constitution.Each & every citizen is free to accept a religion as per his wish.It is India & the citizen of India is bounded to follow the principles of Indian constitutions.

    Though your company is a foreign base,but is in India,so your new GM must understand this basic thing.However in order to avoid any conflict between the employees & management,It is better to obey his Instruction.You can perform your woreship practices at your residence & just do few minutes meditation in your office before starting your work in office.This will work for you & the God will be as happy as scenting a stick in front of deities in office.

    In order to feel fresh in your office,you can use room fresher as per your choice.

    I think you will be happy with the above solution.

    Thanks.

    Ashok

    Dear friend,what is your own ritual/religion kepp it with you.Keep in mind about your duty hours/punctuality and the limitations of work.Here you are the servent of the company,you work in lieu of money.Company pay you inlieu of contract/work.So at the service place company will introduce his rule to gear up company's business not to increase your business hence company can restrict you this is the real ritual of the company.Simultaneously after office hour company is not in a position to do work at your residence as per company's ritual.You have the 100% right to do rituals at your home but not in the office and during office hours' it is absolutely restricted.Better you remember your rituality through your mind silently.

    Thank you,

    Hi friend

    Your manager should certainly not try to impose such strict and shallow-minded rules on the employees of the company. He should be more rational in making laws and also should try to take his employees opinion on the same. Practicing your rituals according to the religion is a form of worship and no one has the authority to take this right away from you irrespective of the fact whether your company is foreign based or not.

    So you should definitely raise your voice against such injustica and try to make your manager more open minded regarding such things. Go to his office and tell him straightforward that you like to start your day by scenting a stick in front of dieties as this is your belief and that it is really unjust to impose a ban on such rituals. Everyone has different beliefs according to their religion plus the freedom to practice those. So you request him to take back this law and let everyone practice their belierfs freely.

    I hope he will surely understand you. Good luck friend

    Yes, definately your employer has the right to restrict performing any kind of rituals in the office environment. I think you should perform your rituals at your at home only, and also leave them at your home. Companies is an professional working area, lighting up agarbatti may be dangerous and infectious to any one. Remind your god and start working there. It's good that you believe in god, but it's not at all compulsory to over perform for it. If you are allowed to do your rituals then other may start their own rituals. And in company instead of working, only rituals will be going on.

    This can be a goofy justification! You're employed inside an MNC,of which doesnot mean that you simply won't be able to apply your own personal religion.The point is,execute the locations are created centrally AC.There usually stays a risk due to the fact whenever little spark with the go with adhere or maybe the agarbatti, could establish dangerous for the office.That little spark may capture the electric wire connections and also can burn eveything.You can continue photography or small idol in the deity that you simply worship.But I'm going to demand explore to be able to mild almost any agarbatti.If almost any accident arises,then you will be held responsible for the episode.Light all of them at your home,but not within office.
    The rationale written by ones GM for not letting apply regarding rituals is rather unlogical.
    You'll find nothing to do with weather the business is international centered or American indian centered, it is concerning the think and also customs.
    According if you ask me you may mild agarbati in your own home never at the office on account of your GM doesnot desire it.
    You may preserve images or a tiny idol of the deity in the office.
    The particular might be a probability in your soul mild a new agarbatti if the idea causes almost any accident then you will be entirely sensible it's the same preferable to steer clear of such risk.
    You are made to go through supervision of the office.But below a new GM just isn't following a concepts regarding American indian constitution.Each & each and every resident is free to be able to pay a religion down to their wish.It is China & the resident regarding China is surrounded to be able to go through concepts regarding American indian constitutions.

    Nevertheless your online business is a far off bottom,yet is within China,simply put new GM must understand this fundamental thing.However to prevent almost any issue involving the employees & administration,It is advisable to be able to pay attention to their Instruction.You may execute ones woreship procedures pictures residence & simply do short while deep breathing within your workplace before beginning work within office.This can work for you & the Our god is going to be while joyful while scenting a new adhere while in front of deities within office.

    In order to really feel contemporary within your workplace,you can utilize room better down to ones choice.
    A person's director ought to certainly not try and demand such demanding and also shallow-minded procedures on the employees in the company. This individual ought to be intelligent for making laws and regulations and even should try to adopt their employees opinion on the same. Doing ones rituals using the religion is a type of praise and no question the specialist to adopt this immediately from you inspite of the truth whether or not your online business is international centered or not.

    Consequently you should definitely yell against such injustica and continue to make your director a lot more unbiased with regards to such things. Head to their company and also be sure he understands clear-cut that you like to start every day by means of scenting a new adhere while in front of dieties while it's your perception knowning that it is really unfounded to be able to demand a new ban in such rituals. All of us have different opinions in respect thus to their religion as well the independence to use those. This means you demand your ex to be able to take back this rules and also enable absolutely everyone apply their particular belierfs freely.
