Bronx man says Muslim CVS boss disliked his 'white boy religion'
by Rich Calder
A Bronx man says he was persecuted over his religious beliefs by bosses at CVS pharmacy after he confided in a supervisor that he's a practicing Seventh Day Adventist.
Nowran Busgith filed a religious-discrimination lawsuit in Manhattan federal court Monday against the pharmacy giant and also his ex-supervisor, Abdul Salui.
The suit alleges Busgith was in good standing as a CVS staffer from 2008 to 2012, working his way up from a cashier to a company "loss-prevention specialist." But he claims Salui, who is Muslim, became hostile toward him after learning of his religious beliefs, repeatedly asking "why [Busgith] was in a 'white boy religion.'"
