3 more Indians in UAE face action over Islamophobic social media posts

Over the weekend, at least three more Indians in UAE have been fired or suspended after their offensive posts were brought to the attention of employers by social media users.
The men now joined nearly half a dozen Indians hate-mongers who have similarly landed in trouble in recent weeks.
The latest addition to the growing list include chef Rawat Rohit, storekeeper Sachin Kinnigoli and a cash custodian whose name has been withheld by his firm.

Indians Violators on Social Media : 

Transguard Group said they have cracked down on an employee who had posted several anti-Islamic messages on his Facebook page under the name of Vishal Thakur.
Pneumics Automation have also said they suspended their storekeeper Sachin Kinnigoli until further notice.
Azadea Group confirmed that Rawat Rohit who was employed with them as a chef has been suspended and is facing a disciplinary probe.

Warning for Indian Social Media Users : 

The new sackings and suspensions come days after both the former and current Indian Ambassadors to the UAE cautioned their countrymen about the UAE’s strict hate speech laws. Similar warnings were issued by missions in other GCC countries.

Strict Laws : 

The UAE outlaws all religious or racial discrimination under a legislation passed in 2015.
The anti-discrimination/anti-hatred law prohibits all acts “that stoke religious hatred and/or which insult religion through any form of expression, be it speech or the written word, books, pamphlets or via online media.”
The legislation mainly aims to fight “discrimination against individuals or groups based on religion, caste, doctrine, race, color or ethnic origin.”
