An Indian, who was running a big business in Dubai, has been forced to deactivate his company website, Linkedin profile, Facebook and Twitter accounts moments after a Royal family member from the UAE warned of consequences for Islamophobia. Saurabh Upadhyay, whose profile described him as the CEO of Rockwell Events and Sales, was called out for his Islamophobic tweets with Princess Hend Al Qassimi of the Sharjah Royal family warning him of dire consequences.

One of Upadhyay’s tweets had read, “What’s with peaceful people and spitting? New form of jiiihad custom made for 2020. I though they were still stuck 1400 years in the past & dint believe in progressing or changing the words spoken (sic).”

In another tweet, he had written, “Death to radical Islamic tablighi terrorists and other radical Islamic sons of satan ja ukhad le bc jo ukhadega (do whatever you want).”

Princess Hend, who’s also an acclaimed author, took a dim of his Islamophobic tweets and wrote, “Anyone that is openly racist and discriminatory in the UAE will be fined and made to leave. An example.”



While Princess Hend earned widespread plaudits for her zero tolerance to Upadhyay’s brazen Islamophobia, the Indian businessman moved swiftly to erase all digital footprints. Within moments, his Facebook and Twitter accounts disappeared. Soon, his company’s website was also taken down even though it’s not clear whether the website of Rockwell Events and Sales was removed at the behest of the UAE government or it was Upadhyay’s own doing.

Upadhyay has also removed his Linkedin profile (please see below).

Several Indians working across the Gulf region have had to lose their jobs and face deportations for their social media posts insulting Islam. Earlier this week, one Kundan Kumar from Pupri in Bihar, working at Burger King in Kuwait, was fired after his Facebook post was seen to be insulting Islam.

This came just days after two Indians were sacked from their job for mocking Islam in the wake of the global outbreak of coronavirus.

  1. Princess described her tweets as ‘example’. That means, it was the UAE police which took action against his website.

    Height of shamelessness and hypocrisy of these bigot Hindutva, who are earning their bread and butter in a Muslim country while cursing Muslims and Islam from a Muslim land.

  2. People feel so bad to even listen to what people of their race do .Instead of making other people shut their mouth, make people understand not to spreed disease like this.

      • I understand why you were so upset, rightly so. But I am sure she did not mean race, guess she could find the right word. (may be tried literal translation from desi, sometimes this can happen. no worries)

  3. According to the UAE cyber law slandering people on social media can be fined up to Dh500,000 and face a 3-year jail term.
    His profile described him as the CEO of Rockwell Events and Sales, political campaign manager, consulting Forbes listed CEO’s and Chairpersons, running multi million Dollar conglomerate in four countries make his bread and butter from this land and spreads communal hatred.

    I appreciate the royal family for stern warning and appeal to the government to take strict action closing down his business with heavy penalties and jail term so that such crime won’t get repeated which offers the jobs to millions of Indians.

    Jai Hind

  4. Saurabh Upadhyay Man to his status saying such things when a Muslim country is giving u so much , I really blame modi , yogi , amit shah for all this hate against Muslims and today an MP of India says stop buying vegetables and fruit from Muslims and modi doesn’t say anything to this shame on you modi seriously. Even your friend Donald trump who’s name you couldn’t say remember that when he came to India has stopped following u on Twitter. You have lost the love of all Muslims in India hope u can sleep well at night .
