Last night the news of Bank Alfalah terminating an employee for using offensive language took social media by storm.
Fazeel Tajammul, (former) Unit Head, Financial Reporting at Bank Alfalah, was reported by renowned journalist, Hasan Zaidi.
It was observed that Tajammul repeatedly made irrational attacks and derogatory comments under various people’s tweets, also targeting the women and children in their family.
Soon after, an official statement from Bank Alfalah was issued, stating that the employee was terminated.

Some are throwing more light on the issue after Alfalah’s decision.
Sexism is rife on social media. We saw it on the Dankpuna pages (including at LUMS). We saw it with the Bank AlFalah employee exposed by @hyzaidi. Women see it EVERY SINGLE DAY in the patronising & often violent language they hear from men. The question is how to deal with this?

While some are saying Alfalah has surpassed Scotland Yard in terms of taking action against hate.
Waisay Bank Alfalah has done better than Scotland Yard in terms of hate material.
