Gurkha Cigars has released the following statement on the resignation of Kaizad Hansotia: “Kaizad Hansotia is resigning his position as the Chairman of Gurkha, effective immediately. Jim Colucci will assume the role of CEO and President of the company.  Mr. Colucci has been with Gurkha since January 1, 2019 when he assumed full operational control.  In addition, once our current packaging inventory is depleted, future packaging will no longer bear the name K. Hansotia.  At Gurkha, we believe smoking a cigar should always be an enjoyable and unifying experience.

We are outraged and saddened at the content of previous posts made on Mr. Hansotia’s personal social media accounts.  These in no way reflect the position or beliefs of the company, its founding mission or its employees.  We stand in solidarity against racism and for racial justice.  We cannot and will not tolerate words or acts of hate, injustice or oppression.

We understand that because of the actions of our founder, we must work to regain the trust of our customers and cigar community.

So basically, if you have a point of view that differs from the regurgitated-ad-nauseum media frenzy narrative you are made to leave. Farewell free speech, hello fascism.

Funny how these libtards who run around screaming about equality and rights don’t actually care about that, only about looking like they fit in to keep sales up.

I assume that you have not read the succession of extremely incendiary posts and tweets that appeared on the social media platforms used by Kaizad Hansotia. His comments reflected an attitude of prejudice that would be unpalatable to most; left to right, right to left, in the American political spectrum.
