Forced to resign

Hello Gentleman,

I am working in a reputed MNC  in India , Company is sweden based.I have been employed here from past 5 years with good performance track.But  unfortunately i and one of my coulegue has been in a situation where we are forced to Travel to " IRAQ " & " NIGERIA " for a month on business trip.

Now as we all know what is going on in IRAQ - IS-IS daily killings & all and EBOLA in NIGERIA.In both the cases it is too dangerous and it is directly a life risk.

Also i have checked the external affairs ministry travel advisory which clearly states to refrain traveling till further notice ( link mentioned below)

Now my boss is forcing me to leave to Iraq asap , i simply dont want to talk about the risk cover as i dont want to go.Moreover nobody is giving me in written that they are the one who are responsible for my travel or Iraq is safe to travel . if i didnt accept then they are saying either you will be terminated or u have to put the resignation.

I am seeking some genuine legal advise on the above mentioned issue as soon as possible as i dont want to travel to IRAQ.

Management knows the risk but they are not supportive.please guide

5. For your interest firm up your next  venture...
