Not just from Arab land and in Canadian soil but also New Zealand sacks Indian of Gujarati origin from judicial body over Islamophobic social media posts
An Indian of Gujarati origin, Kantilal Bhagabhai Patel has been sacked from the membership of the Wellington Justice of Peace Association over his Islamophobic social media posts
Ann Clark, Vice President of the Association, said, “The Association received a complaint and it was investigated. Mr Patel is no longer a member of the Wellington JP Association.”
“Wellington Justices of the Peace Association has referred the matter to the national body representing Justices of the Peace and asked them to consult with the Ministry of Justice,” she said
Clark was replying to a query by a newspaper on the authenticity of an email she had sent to one of the complainants against Patel, which was posted on a Facebook group.
To which she noted, “The email as posted is authentic.”
In the email, Clark wrote to the complainant, “We were appalled at the posts.”
“We have completed our investigation and have concluded that these posts were not consistent with the standards expected of a Justice of the Peace.
Mr Patel has been advised of that and the consequences for him. We are in the process of dealing with that. As you will appreciate not all the usual government systems are working at this time.
Justices of the Peace are appointed through a government process and to cancel that appointment is also a government process. So in the meantime I hope you are willing to accept the apologises of the Wellington Justices of the Peace Association for the actions of this now former member of our Association,” she said.
