Communalisation of COVID-19: After UAE, now Kuwait cracks whip on Islamophobes. 1 Indian sacked another under investigation amidst warning from Kuwaiti MP

7

Days after the UAE took punitive action against two Indians for insulting Islam by blaming Muslims for coronavirus, another Gulf country Kuwait has now cracked the whip on two Indians, who had made similarly disparaging social media posts. One such Indian was Kundan Kumar from Pupri in Bihar, but working at Burger King in Kuwait.

 

 

In one of his Facebook posts, Kumar had disparagingly written, “Jamaati Corona Bomb has left in search of Jannat at several places. We have to be careful. These idiots will get 72 virgins, but we will get deaths.” Kundan was repeating the Islamophobic narrative peddled by Indian TV channels, who blamed the Islamic religious sect for the spread of COVID-19.

Several social media users drew the attention of Burger King in Kuwait, Kumar’s employer, and demanded strict action against him.



Little over an hour later, Burger King Kuwait released an official statement confirming the sacking of Kumar from his job. The statement in Arabic read, “In reference to what’s been circulated on social media platforms about one of our staff in one of our branches inciting hatred and racism, we confirm and condemn this individual’s behaviour.”

The statement went on to add, “We also confirm that the contract of this staff member has been terminated with immediate effect after we established that he indeed violated on social media our guidelines on work ethics and moral behaviour. We would like to reiterate that we will not tolerate these things and take all necessary measures against such unethical and unprofessional acts and deeds in the future.

Elsewhere, a professor of Indian origin is set to lose his job for his anti-Muslim rants on Facebook. Authorities in Kuwait have initiated an investigation against Nandakumaran Moorkath, a professor at Kuwait University. Kuwaiti MP Nayef Almrdas confirmed the development on Twitter and said that the insult to ‘our religion’ will not be tolerated.



Another verified Kuwaiti Twitter user Abdul Rahman Al-Nassar said that the bigot professor had been dismissed. Although, this has not been confirmed by the officials yet.



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

  1. Thanks for providing proof there is no tolerance in muslims countries the same happened in UP a teacher said things in Delhi in rage of the moment but she was reinstated at her jobs as school teacher in UP under BJP MP Yogi

    This is exactly why there are no surviving minority citizens in any of the Arabian countries, all the Jews disappeared from Arabia. All the buddhists disappeared from Afghanistan, All the Zoroastrians disappeared from Iran.All the Hindus disappeared from Pakistan and kashmir.

    Show me one muslim country where bible and gita can be preached and distributed in the public places like it is allowed tolerantly in Hindu majority India.

    What a shame you are sold out for money.

    • There are so many places of worships in these countries and they are feeding so many Hindus and their families of India. They only don’t tolerate crime and hate that you are so proud of.

    • @rj tera baap!!!Moron borrow some money( as a bhakt you wouldn’t be having any ) and travel to Arab countries and see the truth. The Arab countries have built temples for different religions. Why would you see the truth? Sorry you already are a BHAKT!!! Enjoy your bhaktism

  2. Glad that Gulf Arab Muslim world is now noticing the ugly reality that Indian Muslims, Kashmiri Muslims and neighbors of India, and even secular and liberal in India, have to endure.

  3. Well done GCC countries for packing these racist criminals.You find mostly in India and sri lanka .Please pack them home – congratulations in advance

  4. Excellent. Indian Muslims need to actively find such criminals earning money from Muslims and planning their murder. They should be reported to their employers. Good that they have awaken.
