Saudi Arabia may be the land of two Holy Mosques, but its human rights record is dismal

On the evening of October 04, while clearing the social media notifications on my phone, I found a thumb stopper tweet from Saudi Arabia’s Human Rights Council (HRC) that reports directly to Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, King of Saudi Arabia.

The tweet read – #SaudiArabia is committed to strengthening #WorkersRights.

Coincidentally, that same morning, I had received two video messages on my phone, sent by one of my sources, exposing how documented and undocumented migrant workers are locked up in a hellish deportation centre at Al Kharj area in Riyadh.

One of the videos starts with showing migrant workers lying in front of an overflowing toilet, under the washbasin, on untidy blankets and cardboard, near a food waste heap.

Then the camera moves to the windowless hall, where around 250 migrant workers are sitting and lying on the floor without even having space to stretch their hands or legs.

The room, which is about 250 square metres in area, is meant to house only 80 inmates at maximum capacity.

But in every room, 250 to 300 migrant workers are housed, a 54-year-old Indian migrant engineer who has lived in one of the cells for four months in the centre, told The Lede.

There are 52 such cells in the deportation centre.  read more…

  1. If the prophet was alive today he would wage a war against the terrorist House of Saud for all of their Satanic evils that they have inflicted and continue to inflict upon the peoples of the region and of this world.

    These demons in S.A represent world-Islam about as much as the terrorists demons in Tel Aviv represent world Jewry (not a whole lot since they break their own religious rules on a daily basis. Just like the House of Saud does break Prophet Muhammad’s teachings, DAILY). Same as how much the Vatican represents world Christianity. Its all a charade. These people are Luciferians, but they pretend to be Jews or Muslims or Christians.
    Mozes, Mohammad and Jesus spit on them, as should you, I and anyone else who believes in good rather than evil.

    Humankind will only be free with God’s blessing.
    And that blessing will only be given once the evils of humankind have been washed away by the righteous.
