After Failing to Block Sudhir Chaudhry, UAE Princess Launches Social Media Group to Track Islamophobes

She says the job of Angels of Mercy is to find the haters, post their pictures, crime and personal details on social media

 

NEW DELHI – Emirati Princess Hend Bint Faisal Al-Qasmi, who was in news recently for unsuccessfully opposing Zee News anchor Sudhir Chaudhry’s visit to Abu Dhabi, has now launched a campaign on social media to track Islamophobes and Muslim haters in the United Arab Emirates.

The Princess, who is also businesswoman and philanthropist, has formed a group named Angels of Mercy (AOM) to carry out this work of tracking those who are indulged in abusing any community and religion especially Islam and Muslims in her country.

Through a tweet on Monday, she informed about AOM saying that those who indulged in such activities will be deported from the Gulf country.

“We are creating #AngelsOfMercy where any #Islamophobes in the #UAE will be #Captured #Deported. People that associate with them are accountable as well. There is a fine line between free speech & hate speech. Free speech encourages debate whereas hate speech incites violence,” she tweeted.

 

In another tweet, she said that the job of the AOM is to find the haters, post their pictures, crime and personal details on social media.

“This applies to all. No one is getting bullied in the Emirates. Not Muslims, Christians, Hindus – no colored folks either,” she said.

 

After forming this group, she talked about the first job that AOM undertook. It was emails sent to the sponsors of the ICAI (Institute of Chartered Accountants of India) event in Abu Dhabi for which invitation was sent to Sudhir Chaudhry.

The princess pointed out Islamophobic and anti-Muslim journalism of Chaudhry demanding the cancellation of his invitation. But the ICAI refused to disinvite him. Chaudhry arrived at the UAE and posted videos and pictures from there.

On Wednesday, December 1, Chaudhry issued a statement slamming the Princess and others for objecting to his visit to the UAE.

“They were wrong. I did visit Abu Dhabi and attend the event and spoke my heart out. This is despite pressure, intimidation tactics, life-threatening emails and coordinated trolling, that did not even spare the other guests and sponsors. They were told to pull out from the event or stop me from speaking at the event,” said Chaudhry in his statement posted on his Twitter handle.

Chaudhry also claimed that he is not an Islamophobe.

 

Meanwhile, people are identifying those who are spreading Islamophobia in the UAE. The Princess posted the screenshot of a message shared by a man in the UAE asking people to boycott the Halal-certified products.
