Indian Housemaid beaten, forced to sleep outside of the house.

Salma Begum and her bruises
When will people understand that if you have a maid that WORKS for you, you don’t OWN the maid at ALL?

 Thanks to a tweet by @Abaretruth, I came across this piece of news on gulf-daily-news.com

An Indian worker in Bahrain was beaten by her employer and forced to sleep outside of the house. She finally had enough of that horrible fucked up situation and decided to flee her employers’ household. 

“She beat me so hard that there are marks all over my body.” 

“Whenever I washed clothes for her, she beat me. When I drank cold water, she beat me. If I sat on the carpet, she beat me.” 

“Then I decided to run away as it was more than I could stand – I didn’t bring any of my belongings, I just opened the door and ran.”

    It is appalling how humans treat each other. At least, animals only attack each other when they are hunting for food. The law of the strongest does not justify modernday slavery. Unfortunately, i don’t think there is hope for humanity to become humane.

      Bullying is really what those people do.

      They must feel REALLY strong and powerful when they hit their maids. But the truth is, in reality…they’re not so strong at all.

      Bullies are weak.
