Saudi Arabian employer accused of chopping off Indian maid’s hand

An Indian maid has claimed her employer in Saudi Arabia cut off her hand in punishment for poor work, after months of mistreatment in the kingdom.

Kashturi Munirathinam, 55, is being treated in a hospital in Riyadh, the Saudi capital, her family told Indian media.

Munirathinam travelled to Saudi Arabia from her home in a rural district of the southern Indian state of Tamil Nadu three months ago to take up a job as a cleaner in a household in the eastern city of Dammam and then in Riyadh. She was to be paid about £150 a month.

“When she tried to escape harassment and torture, her right hand was chopped off by the woman employer. She fell down and sustained serious spinal injuries,” her sister, S Vijayakumari, told local media.

This is right on the heels of the sexual assault I posted a few days ago, me posting this again some may think I am against Saudis, but c'mon how many situations like this it will take before polite society in that nation realize they have a problem that need addressing , and it's always the folks from non western countries that get mistreated, Asians , Africans and in some case Eastern Europeans although there was a very recent case of a rich Saudi sexually assaulting his maid in Beverly Hills in which she tried to jump a 20ft wall, he escaped and is now out of the country.

Not good. Can't wait to see what they propose when they become head of human rights. Money buys it all.

Saudis, US best friends in the region (like Israel): racism, apartheid, slavery, collective punishment,..
There is an old saying: «Tell me with who you walk around, I will tell who you are»

The Saudis just have a different culture with which we are unfamiliar. We need to embrace their culture and support them... not be haters!
^^^^^ NOT!^^^^^^

Thanks for posting this story. More people need to see this stuff and be enlightened.

Sounds like a joke to me but il bite. Should a 74 yr old man get 350 lashes who has cancer? Should a woman have her hand cut off for not accepting sexual abuse? Embrace you say.......

I put that 'NOT' in there to point out my sarcasm.
They are some backwards-ass people over there.

Granted, the 74 y/o must have been aware that he was breaking Saudi law, so he shouldn't have put himself in that situation.

I don't know why anyone would even want to visit such a place.
Like I said, spread the word. No one should go there... or even deal with them.

It's not our place to dictate their government policies any more than it's their place to dictate our policies.

In the case with the old man, he knew that what he was doing was illegal and held serious consequences, but he chose to break the law anyway. You may not see it as a serious infraction, but it is there. He's simply being held accountable for his actions.

As far as the lady who had her hand chopped off, that's tragic, but we've only heard one side of the story. Sometimes, even many times, only half the story is told. I can only hope that justice was (or will be) served.

They should just imagine that that could have been their own daughter.

just imagine: your young daughter comes back from her foreign work, missing a hand, showing intense signs of torture. Yeah. f**k SA!

All monarchies are slave states, this is why the rest of the world cut the heads of the slaver-kings many moons ago. Its pretty much Saudi and Englund that are the last two causing trouble for everyone. Lets remember the current middle east states only legally exist because the slave traders in Lundon let them exist.

Follow the money. Maybe start with "Anglo-Iranian Oil Company".

Fair point, but I feel I can dictate policy when it involves rape , sexual abuse and slavery. You are correct I'm not entitled to nor is any country, but does a man with cancer where 350 lashings will with a high probability, kill him, deserve it. He didn't steal money (worst crime out there) nor rape/kill, and they serve alcohol in the country...

He did wrong, but allow him. Childish stance I know but allow him...lol

Just for the record it's safe to say he didn't know the full consequences. He more than likely thought the 1 yr he served in prison was punishment enough. He might have been looking to be beheaded but not 350. ( no southpark references plz)

a reply to: Hyperia

If I am a slave and I choose to not work what happens to me?

If I am a member of the workforce and I choose to not work what happens to me?

Whats the difference? Physical and emotional abuse?

In most places on earth everyone is a slave to someone.

It's probably similar to the difference between an employee and a slave in the US.

good job in painting the entire Saudi people as monsters who agree to the hand being cut off.

we need to clean our own backyard first before passing moral judgments and 'demonizing' an entire nation.

the "Saudis"your title says 'some employers' then the thread and replies just throws every Saudi person in the 'Saudis' circle.

this thread is already bias, theres no need to dig deeper into this case and find out what happens to the employer. because its been made to sound like its ok and the 'Saudis' are not going to open a criminal investigation case because Saudis think its ok to treat employees like slaves-- or is it just 'some' Saudis.

They even have euphemism for slavery,they call the slaves unpaid domestic workers and claim they don't have slaves.

Yeah just like the U.S. Government supports raping little boys in the name of cultural sensitivity and tolerance.
And support the slave holding Saudis running a human rights council. Gotta love the lefties

Slavery is alive and well. Wasn't there an incident of a domestic fleeing her owner in New York of all places? When the British Empire went on its crusade to stamp out slavery in its Empire, the place that was most resistant to giving it up was the Middle Eastern nations. This woman may have thought she was an employee, but I'll bet the family she worked for thought of her as something quite different. This is not an uncommon story, and yes, it will be women from other countries and of other ethnicities. Its not a bug; its a feature of the type of culture we're talking about, and Saudi Arabia is not alone in having it. It's common to most Arab nations.

Knowing many Saudis I can tell you that you are going to find all kinds of people. Some are crazy, some are bad, some are kind, some are good. Kind of like every other country on Earth. Imagine judging all Americans by some the crazy stuff in our news.
