    What are our diplomats doing in Saudi?

    Ali reza Tuesday, 24 August 2010 07:34 PM

    These Saudis are brutes, who have no respect for humanity!

    Shariah law?

    Anand Wednesday, 25 August 2010 04:11 AM

    Please do not send poor ladies to Saudi.

    Managala Wednesday, 25 August 2010 05:30 AM

    At Least Now Please stop sending our innocent mothers and sisters for slavery..

    Wonder how much money the agent pocketed from this poor woman. No human rights activists?

    ramlan Wednesday, 25 August 2010 06:45 AM

    My dear gentlemen, why don't you keep your wives at home and go and earn instead!

    This is an unrealistic story and so far from being true. How did she make it past the airport metal detector?

    I'm Saudi citizen ... I apologize to the misfortunate maid and the nice people of Sri Lanka for dispecable act of brutality and torture and for what she's been through ... This incident doesn't represent all Saudi people or Islam and we don't encourage such inhuman behavior. Who ever did this to her has to be brought to court and prosecuted and put away. I would recommend from Sri lankan officials in Saudi Arabia to report it the Saudi government via the proper channel of diplomatic communication and ask for justice. Such an act will strenghten the bond between two countries to ensure more protection of Sri lankan labors rights and their safety ... But don't stay mute ... go and report it diplomatically ASAP

    Once again I apologize for the unique unjust and inhuman act by the couple and they only represent themself and their twisted sanity !!!!

    Kind regards,
    Ahmed Gahtani

    Blame this government, of an unstable economy, instead of the rest!

    Vipula Ranjith Tuesday, 31 August 2010 05:47 AM

    Where is this so called human right activist? Where is Irene Khan and Nevi pillai? Where is Ban-ki-moon (American Puppet)
