An operation theatre technician at the Government Medical College (GMC) in Jammu’s Rajouri lost her job over her WhatsApp status that reportedly showed “celebrations of the defeat of the Indian cricket team against Pakistan” in a T20 World Cup match on Sunday.
The administration in Jammu and Kashmir terminated the services of the technician on Thursday. The principal of the college, Dr Brij Mohan, issued an order to this effect after the deputy superintendent of police in Rajouri brought the matter to his notice.
The order states, “A viral video has come to the notice of the undersigned from different media platforms and also from DySP HQ, Rajouri, who sent the same via WhatsApp, in which Safiya Majeed, working as an OT technician in GMC and AH, Rajouri, seems to have posted her WhatsApp status showing celebrations of the defeat of the Indian cricket team against Pakistan in T-20 World Cup 2021, the activity which seems to be disloyalty towards the nation.”

“No employee of this institution shall be allowed to be disloyal to the nation,” the order says.
The principal also stated that the technician took leave and did not report back to work after her period of leave had elapsed. “No prior notice is required to be given to such employee for gross indiscipline in her duties,” he added.
The technician’s services, appointed on an academic arrangement basis on November 27, 2020, have been terminated with immediate effect.
Meanwhile, in Uttar Pradesh, the police have booked seven people and arrested four for allegedly having celebrated Pakistan’s victory over India in the T20 World Cup cricket match on October 24.
