Woman Loses Job For Putting Pakistan’s Win Vs India In WhatsApp Status
Jammu: Safiya Majeed had allegedly put up a video of celebration of India’s defeat at the hands of Pakistan in the T20 World Cup on Sunday. She paid a heavy price as she lost her job.
The Jammu & Kashmir administration on Thursday terminated the services of the OT (Operation Theatre) technician, describing her action as “disloyalty towards nation’’.
The termination order, issued by the Principal of Government Medical College Rajouri, Dr Brij Mohan, referred to the receipt of a viral video from different media platforms as well as from DySP (HQ) Rajouri which she seems to have posted as her WhatsApp status showing “celebration of defeat of Indian cricket team against Pakistan in T20 World Cup, 2021’’.
The order further stated: “Whereas no employee of this institution shall be allowed to be disloyal to the nation and whereas, as reported by the Head of Department of Gynae & Obst., she had proceeded on five days leave with effect from October 21 and she failed to join duty after the expiry of leave period.’’
It pointed out that Safiya was engaged as OT Technician in GMC and Associated Hospital, Rajouri, on the basis of academic arrangement, and that “no prior notice is required to be given to such employee for gross indiscipline in her duties. Her services stand terminated with immediate effect.”
Police have detained eight persons in Jammu’s Samba district for allegedly raising pro-Pakistan slogans following the T20 World Cup match in Dubai on Sunday.
Pakistan beat India by 10 wickets to record their first-ever victory over the arch-rivals in a World Cup game in any format.
