I visited Saudi Arabia twice in my life and saw how they treat people who went there for work specially people from Bangladesh even the work supervisors from India,Pakistan and Sri Lanka don't treat us as human being to show the Arabs that how pet they are of Arabs !
When I was a Madinah airport back in 2004 the cleaners had chat with their desi bhai me and told me that they virtually are bonded labors ! Their official dormitory is 200 km from workplace a place from where the nearest shop is around 30 km by car.They cannot change the job as Akama(work permit) is owned by his/her Malik ! even if they manage to change the job they have to pay monthly royalty to the Rich Malik for letting him work in other place .
The 8 people who died was not conversant in Arbaic and couldn't afford a defense lawyer (all over the world judiciary is expensive) and I don't expect our Probashi Kalyan mukhi government ( Migrant worker friendly government) to help them to defend their case ! Just read today another 6 on death row ... will it happen the same even the family cannot expect the dead body ! ?
Only praising them for their contribution on seminars ,symposium and celebrating nationally is the outcome for a migrant worker who contributes so much that with their foreign currency earning and sending back to homeland without those we cannot import anything even not rice !
Such an ungrateful nation and state mechanism ...
P.S: Thanks to Mr. Zillur Rahman the President of Bangaldesh for sending a letter to Saudi autority for asking clemency for those 8 .
