    WHIH IS UNACCEPTABLE AND AN ACT OF INHUMAN

    If proved guilty the perpetrator should be nailed doubled the number of nails, that is what Saudi Islamic law based on strict interpretation of Quranic justice!

    My question is why do we still want to send our women for slavery? Money is one thing, but we have to think about their safety.

    Shahira law does not apply to Saudi who did this?

    Are we just going to criticize her former boss and stop there? How about through DAILY MIRROR we collect some money for her to make sure that she never needs to go to another country for employment? If Daily Mirror initiates it am sure this will work.
    My prayers for her.

    Get well soon, God bless you and the medical team.

    what a sorry state..SL embassy should pressurise the saudi authority to give capital punishment as per saudi law (if found guilty) for such inhuman act.

    Jix Friday, 27 August 2010 06:19 AM

    What an amazingly strong, resilient women...having seen her on TV, her spirit still seems not to have broken! I have no doubt she will overcome this. Sri Lanka is watching over and praying for you!

    The Saudi should not be pardoned if he or anyone has tortured this innocent lady. At the same time it should be checked by scientific means when these nails entered her body.

    Mohamed Thahir Ahame Friday, 27 August 2010 06:25 AM

    Aren't there ways at least to make complaints through Saudi embassy in Sri Lanka and expose it globally to bring forward the culprits to avoid more similar cases

    Yehiya-Doha Friday, 27 August 2010 06:30 AM

    Have to educate the international organizations.

    Ravana Friday, 27 August 2010 06:34 AM

    DHA Friday, 27 August 2010 06:34 AM

    LALIN MENDIS Friday, 27 August 2010 06:42 AM

    Abeysinghe Friday, 27 August 2010 06:44 AM

    The government should stop sending women to this uncivilized country.

    nmn Friday, 27 August 2010 06:48 AM

    stone to death is not enough for those who did this cruelty....when the almighty punish those animal creatures, they will feel the pain more than 100% than this innocent lady's pain...

    Ja Friday, 27 August 2010 06:52 AM

    Where is Weerawansa, does he going to protest in front of Saudi embassy.

    Chandana Friday, 27 August 2010 06:52 AM

    Where is all these so called "Human Right Organizations"??? Seems they cant make any money out of this issue.

    nishandj Friday, 27 August 2010 06:54 AM

    Yes of course.. We like it..

    Muhandiram Imsid Friday, 27 August 2010 06:33 PM

    Can anyone tell me how the Saudi employer managed to insert as many as 24 nails into her body, without causing her serious injury?

    Faqi Friday, 27 August 2010 06:34 PM

    Please post an English translation of this video! If this had happened in a Western country our politicians would have been clamoring on the streets of Colombo, by now, calling for their blood, with all sorts of racists remarks. But they are cowards when it comes to Saudi Arabia. So much for justice!

    sharm Friday, 27 August 2010 06:39 PM

    Inserting nails into one's own body is also a common form of self-mutilation, seen in victims of stress. Hopefully this will be investigated by forensic physicians and will not just be a "trial by the media."

    Is this an isolated case?
