    A UAE-based company has sacked an Indian employee here for abusing a fellow Indian on the social media  and for posting offensive posts against Islam on Facebook, a media report said.

    abuse

    Rana Ayyub, a well-known investigative journalist based in New Delhi, exposed the vulgar messages on Twitter sent to her by the man, following which some of her followers reported the matter to the management of the UAE company where the Indian worked.

    abuse

    The 31-year-old employee from Kerala was identified as B.B. He joined Alpha Paint in Dubai, a sister company of National Paints in Sharjah, in 2015, the Gulf News reported on Monday.

    Ayyub posted a screenshot of the message one day last week, saying: “Just a sample of the filth I receive on my Facebook page. Time to name and shame this pervert.”

    Under the United Arab Emirates (UAE) cybercrime law, any form of misuse of a computer, smart device or an electronic network could fetch the violator, if found guilty, a lengthy jail term and/or a heavy fine.

    abuse

    The company said it terminated the expat’s contract and will pay for his tickets and his rights according to the UAE labour law.

    The man’s visa was cancelled on Monday and he was set to be deported, said the daily.

    Ayyub told Gulf News that she will be filing a police case against the accused in New Delhi.
