Dubai: An employee of UAE-based Transguard Group has been sacked and deported after he allegedly celebrated the massacre of Muslims in New Zealand last week. He posted an insensitive comment on Facebook expressing his approval of the terror attacks and also suggested that such attacks should also happen in India.

"Over the weekend, a Transguard employee made inflammatory comments on his personal Facebook account celebrating the deplorable mosque attack in Christchurch, New Zealand. This prompted an internal investigation, which uncovered the fact that the individual in question had been posting his views on social media under an assumed name", the company said in a statement posted on its website.

"After verifying this person’s actual identity, he was apprehended by Transguard, stripped of his security credentials, terminated from our employment and handed over to the relevant authorities as per company policy and UAE Cybercrime Law No. 5 of 2012", the company said.

"As of this statement, he has been deported by the UAE government", it said.

“We have a zero-tolerance policy for the inappropriate use of social media, and as a result this individual was immediately terminated and turned over to the authorities to face justice,” said Greg Ward, Transguard’s Managing Director.

"Transguard’s long-standing social media policy was established in support of the UAE’s stringent cybercrime regulations. It is enforced through regular monitoring, evaluation and, if necessary, disciplinary action, including fines, termination and deportation, as per federal law", the statement further said.

The security company neither disclosed the identity of its employee nor shared the message he had posted. However, screenshot of the alleged message taking round on social media revealed that the accused used a fake ID with the name Rony Singh to write the inflammatory posts.

In his message posted on Facebook using the fake ID, he invoked the February 14 terrorist attack in Pulwama district of Kashmir and also said such attack should be repeated evey Friday.

"It should happen even in India", he wrote calling Muslims a "dubious community".
