Indian Employee of UAE-Based Company fired for texting sexually explicit message
An UAE-based company has recently sacked an Indian employee for abusing journalist Rana Ayyub on social media. The incident of texting sexually explicit message came to light when the journo takes up the issue to twitter and posted the vulgar messages sent by 31-year-old Bincylal Balachandran.
Notably, Balachandran, native of Kerala, was working in Dubai for Alpha Paint, a sister company of National Paints in Sharjah, since 2015.
As seen in the tweets of Rana Ayyub, Balachandran had sent abusive messages with sexual overtones through Facebook messages. As per information received, the company, when notified about the incident, checked his Facebook account and summoned him.
Human resource manager of the company, Shadi Al Refai, said that “We verified the accuracy of the information and checked on the name of the man. On April 8, at 8 am the termination order of (Bincylal Balachandran) was issued.”
Ayyub later said on Twitter that the man’s visa had been revoked and that he would be deported back to India.
Action against Balachandran comes at a time when social media websites like Twitter and Facebook are often used to target people and even abuse and threaten them online. It is often easy for someone to target people online because of the lack of accountability and anonymity.
