Bosch, the German multinational engineering and technology company, has recently been the subject of a social media backlash after one of its employees posted derogatory content about the Hindu community and the Indian army.
The alleged employee has been identified as one Aboobakker Siddique. Twitter account, ‘Hate Patrol Squad’ had posted a thread on the micro-blogging platform exposing Siddique for his vitriolic remarks about Hindus and the Indian army. According to his LinkedIn profile, Siddique currently works at ‘Bosch’ as an ‘Embedded software specialist’. He also claimed to have 7+ years of experience in the field, as per his LinkedIn bio.
Aboobakker Siddique openly bats for Hindu genocide
‘Hate Patrol Squad’ has posted several screenshots where Siddique was seen openly vying for Hindu genocide. While responding to a tweet about the Bangladeshi army forcibly taking items from Jumma settlers in Chittagong Hill tracts, he wrote, “Best army. Following traditions.” On being told by one Twitter user that they are committing genocide against Hindus, Siddiqui replied, “Based. They are clear where their loyalties lie. They do not muddle their thinking with fake human rights concerns.”
In another tweet, he was seen rejoicing the demolition of Hindu temples. “Based!!! High Court (HC) should order razing of all temples,” the person remarked.
Islamist justifies the demolition of Buddha statues in Afghanistan by Taliban
While responding to an Instagram post by ‘True Indology’ about the demolition of the Buddhas of Bamiyan statues by the Taliban, Aboobakker Siddique claimed, “This is not correct news. Taliban was not happy when they destroyed. In fact, they mourned that they had to destroy the Buddha. It was because some monks molested women near the statue and defiled the place that Taliban heavyheartedly broke it.”
Siddiqui abuses the Indian army
Just like Pakistani trolls who often ridicule India as ‘Endia’ and Indian army as ‘Lundiyan army’, Siddique followed the footsteps of his Pakistani brethren. He claimed that Indian army generals drink with enemy generals at sunset, after Major General Harsha Kakar snubbed ideas about India helping out Pakistan with Coronavirus vaccines.
In another tweet, Siddique wrote, “There was a time when you could get doxxed for calling this place L*ndiya and R*ypublic. There was a time when you could get rained on when you cursed bloodthirsty government officers. Treacherous lot.”
Bosch issues clarification, several netizens demand proof from the company
Following the controversy, Bosch Engineering and Business Solutions responded to the controversy. In a tweet, it said,”We would like to confirm that the person in discussion is not part of Bosch India/RBEI anymore. As an ethical and value driven organization, we do not tolerate views that hurt, offend sentiments of any person, ethnicity, or organization.”
Several netizens however have not been satisfied with the response. They have demanded evidence from the company’s end to substantiate its claims that Siddique is not an employee anymore.
