People often ask, in times of complete destitution and hopelessness, why isn’t Allah helping the Muslims? Why is there so much cruelty and barbarity in the world? Some even go far as to ask, Where is Allah in all this senseless slaughter? The answer to all these senile questions is, when there is so much disparity of wealth within the Muslim world alone why would Allah solve a people’s condition when they do not want to. The following pictures should be enough to silence any dissent being thrown on Allah or Islam in general.
Let alone give such amount of wealth to worthy causes, the Qataris can at least begin by giving a decent wage to all the hundreds of Indian-sub continent workers that were drafted in to make the Qatari world cup a dream come true. To date, many hundreds of workers have died working in unbearable conditions to build the stadium complexes. Many have neither a good home or a decent number of working hours to live a decent life. Working long hours in the searing heat of the Arabian peninsula is unthinkable never mind having to actually work there.
This data has the effect of a slap on the face when one reads that Qatar refused to raise the minimum wage paid to Filipino domestic servants to $400 a month. A Filipino cleaning lady earns about $200 a month in Qatar, often without a weekly day off and the most serious aspect is that low wages are the least of her problems.
According to the International Trade Union Confederation (ITUC), the conditions experienced by many foreign workers in Qatar can only be described as 21st century slavery. In Qatar, 99% of the private sector labour force consists of foreigners whose passports are often confiscated and who are forbidden from forming trade unions or associations, reports Human Rights Watch (HRW).
This is oppression of its highest kind, to think and continually criticize the west for not stepping up to the plate and delivering their promises with action; In stopping the abuses of people across the world, namely the Muslim’ world can only go so far in as much to draw attention to the pathetic state of the Muslim world. And, its so called rich and wealthy nations.
