In another show of cruelty inflicted on domestic helpers by their Muslim employers in the Middle East, a Saudi woman mercilessly chopped off the arm of her Indian housemaid.
Kasthuri Munirathna, a 56-year old Indian woman from a village in Tamil Nadu was in a critical condition and had to undergo major surgery after her crazy Muslim employer chopped off her arm.
The reason? Kasthuri complained to the authorities that her employers were ill-treating her.
Kasthuri tearfully recalled begging for her employer not to harm her but the crazed Muslim paid no attention to her pleas and kicked her, punched her and proceeded to cutting off her arm instead.

Prior to the incident, Kasthuri suffered a lot in the hands of her cruel employers. According her son, she’s not even allowed to communicate with her family in India. She finally got an opportunity to complain when she met the Saudi authorities while the latter were doing rounds, making periodical enquiries about the well-being of housemaids in Saudi Arabia.
Upon learning of the maltreatment, the Saudi officials warned her employers not to harass her. It angered her employer who decided to take revenge by cutting off Kasthuri’s arm soon after the officials left.

Kasthuri’s case is just one story among the thousands of undocumented and unreported cruelty of Arab Muslims towards the less privileged migrants and foreign workers under their employ, mostly those from Asian countries whom they consider inferior to them.
But watch them complain of discrimination, oppression and racism in the West when the very fact is, they practice the most inhumane and most racist treatment of migrants and foreign workers back in their native countries.
Going back to Kasthuri’s chopped arm and the cruelty inflicted by Arab Muslims towards their domestic helpers, one would wonder if this is sanctioned by Islam.
The answer is a BIG YES.
Islam condones slavery and Muslims are encouraged to live in the way of Muhammad, who was a slave owner and trader.
From the Qur’an:
Qur’an (2:178): “O ye who believe! Retaliation is prescribed for you in the matter of the murdered; the freeman for the freeman, and the slave for the slave, and the female for the female.”
The message of this verse which prescribes the rules of retaliation for murder, is that all humans are not created equal. According to this Islamic verse, the human value of a slave is less than that of a free person and a woman’s worth is also distinguished from that of a man’s.
Qur’an (16:75): “Allah sets forth the Parable (of two men: one) a slave under the dominion of another; He has no power of any sort; and (the other) a man on whom We have bestowed goodly favours from Ourselves, and he spends thereof (freely), privately and publicly: are the two equal? (By no means;) praise be to Allah.”
This confirms the Islamic teaching that the slave is not equal to the master. In this case it is plain that the slave owes his status to Allah’s will.
From the Hadith:
Abu Dawud 1814: “…[Abu Bakr] He then began to beat [his slave] him while the Apostle of Allah (pbuh) was smiling and saying: Look at this man who is in the sacred state (putting on ihram), what is he doing?”
The future first caliph of Islam is beating his slave for losing a camel while Muhammad looks on in apparent amusement.
Ibn Ishaq (734): A slave girl is given a “violent beating” by Ali in the presence of Muhammad, who does nothing about it.
Abu Dawud (38:4458): Narrated Ali ibn AbuTalib: “A slave-girl belonging to the house of the Apostle of Allah (peace_be_upon_him) committed fornication. He (the Prophet) said: Rush up, Ali, and inflict the prescribed punishment on her. I then hurried up, and saw that blood was flowing from her, and did not stop. So I came to him and he said: Have you finished inflicting (punishment on her)? I said: I went to her while her blood was flowing. He said: Leave her alone till her bleeding stops; then inflict the prescribed punishment on her. And inflict the prescribed punishment on those whom your right hands possess (i.e. slaves)”.
Bukhari (41.598): Slaves are property.
A slave girl is ordered by Muhammad to be beaten until she bleeds, and then beaten again after the bleeding stops. He indicates that this is prescribed treatment for slaves (“those whom your right hand possesses”).
Muslims get discriminated and oppressed all the time?
Muslim atrocities has nothing to do with Islam?
