In a home in Sri Lanka Rizana was still a little girl, where she would have not been short of tender love and affection. In a Sri Lanka household a daughter brings untold happiness into the house. As she blooms into woman hood she becomes a treasure loved and protected. Rizana Rafeek the little girl that left her home with her little head, now severed by brutes, full of dreams of a better future for her father, mother, here two little sisters and for herself perhaps a happy marriage a home and children.
But she bloomed into womanhood in a Saudi Arabian prison and had her beautiful head severed from her yet growing childish body by a ruthless man worshipping the same god as she, obeying a most savage Muslim Sharia Law which is certainly not of Allah , but of a man who claimed Allah spoke to the people through him many years back in a dry savage desertic land.
Rizana coming from a poor family where her poor father was toiling hard to keep the home fires burning had seen how some of her neighbours or relatives had helped their families to make their lives a little brighter from the money they had brought with them after having worked for the rich
Arab families in the Middle East. Those who had come back from working for Arab families some with nails and needles and others psychologically wounded for ever do not relate their ordeals and the brutality suffered working as slaves for Arab Saudi families.. Rizana ignorant of the brutality of the Arab homes too wanted to help her family from wages she may earn working for a Muslim family in Saudi Arabia.
Rizna's mother and FatherRizana’s father and mother may have consented because of the poverty they were faced with and without fear as Rizana would after all be working for a rich Muslim family in Saudi Arabia praying five times a day for the same omniscient Allah they themselves prayed .
The poor parents of Rizana who sent her daughter still a child of seventeen away to the people worshiping the same Allah they worshipped to bring back home happiness and prosperity was beheaded and was denied her parents to even see her youthful face of a woman in her twenties before the Sharia sward severed her head from her body, and buried without even a tear from her loved one’s to accompany her into the warm repulsive Saudi earth of sinners.
The Saudi Arabian Government extended its savagery towards Rizana to last five long years in their evil prison cells before she was savagely beheaded still a young girl at 24. Even the King of Saudi Arabia is said to have been unable to go against the Sharia Law.
In the modern world where men are being prepared to be sent into the space in search of life in other planets , the Arab countries rich with their petrol money follow a religion which is old and decadent. They spend their time praying to Allah five times a day, and follow the Koran dictated by Him, advising the believers to punish law breakers by beheading, decapitating, and chopping hands and feet following the savage primitive archaic uncivilised laws of a cursed divinity.
What good is a religion if it demands perpetration of utmost cruelty to human beings in the name of its God ?
Working in any Arab country in the Middle East is not a happy and a comforting occupation. The evidence of brutality committed against the servants slaving in Arab homes is manifold in Sri Lanka. Some of our poor women gone for slavery in the Middle East came back with nails and needles in the bodies , others with burnt marks. Some were decapitated for minor offences or for carrying a statue of the Buddha.
A domestic aid entering an Arab Muslim employer’s home in reality entering a prison. The first thing the employer does is to take possession of the passport, then her bags are ransacked removing portable telephones, photos and images. There after the poor domestic aid becomes their slave. She is locked up prohibiting any communication with any one out side the employer’s home.
They have to work from 3 o’clock in the morning and goes to sleep only after cleaning and washing every thing, which would be after midnight. The domestic aid has no time to sleep.
The Arab Muslim homes do not differentiate between a Muslim domestic servant or one of another religion. For them they are all slaves. Many are the Sri Lankan domestic servants that had worked for Arab Muslim homes who have committed suicide jumping from the third or fourth floors of their employers opulent homes unable to support gruelling work and inhuman treatment met out to them.
We can understand the ordeal poor Rizana had gone through, and no one would agree that she who had two young sisters to look after in her poor home in Sri Lanka would kill deliberately a baby in her care.
She would have slaved in that Muslim home in Saudi Arabia from morning till evening rubbing floors and cleaning toilets, washing clothes and sweeping yards and also look after the little baby while her “overfed mother decked in luxury” was having her siesta or gone out shopping. Poor
Rizana tired working from morning till late into night may not have been in her best form when she had to feed the little baby.
Therefore in such a state it is possible that the baby got chocked and there was none at home to be called for help. No investigation had been made nor an autopsy on the body of the dead child carried out to ascertain the reason for its death.
Recounting all that is of no avail now as nothing can bring Rizana tortured and beheaded in public back to life.
We are all responsible for the cruel untimely death of Rizana, therefore we should make a determination to fight against sending our women to slavery in Arab Muslim Countries which is sending living beings to hell.
If the government takes a determined decision and stops our women going to slavery into these Arab Muslim countries then we could at least draw a breath of satisfaction that Rizana had not allowed those brutes armed with the Sharia Law and a sward to have beheaded her in vain.
