NEW DELHI: Mejbel Al Sharika, a Kuwaiti lawyer and Director of International Human Rights has announced that a team of legal experts has been formed to tackle Islamophobia and hate crimes on social media platforms for India and Gulf.
Earlier, Al Sharika announced to voluntarily adopt the cause of Indian Muslims at United Nations Human Council in Geneva. He has also called out Indian Muslims to help in documenting the evidence of violence.
There is a growing list of expats who continue to write anti-Muslim, anti-Islamic comments on the social networking sites, leading some top Emirati figures, Organisation of Islamic Cooperation, intellectuals and activists to issue a warning.
In recent month, an increasing number of Indian nationals working in the Gulf’s rich Muslim country have been reportedly fired and forced to leave from UAE for posting Islamophobic messages on social media.
