Mumbai (30 November 2014): In India the people who are fighting with penury and poverty in life always look towards oil producing regions of West Asia as a solution to their economic problems. Many times their wish gets fulfilled but there are times when they have to deal with the horrific sides of these countries. For years we have heared stories of ill-treatments of immigrants in gulf countries but till now robust mechanism has been put in place by the Indian foreign ministry or our embassies in these countries.

One complaint which is common is that if there is a quarrel between Indians and locals, then the authorities almost always favour local citizens. The claims of gulf countries to follow Islamic system, in which every person irrespective of their caste, class or ethnicity, should be treated equally, is seldom proved to be true.

One more case of violations of labour rights of Indian workers in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia has surfaced where there are around 50 works whose salaries have not been paid since July this year. This is alleged to be because of a fight between the employer and the government of Saudi Arabia. These labourers are from Uttar Pradesh and Bihar who went to Saudi Arabia by paying hefty amounts to agents in Delhi and Mumbai.

These migrants were not only denied their salaries for five months but were kept in the most inhuman conditions and that too without food for days. They requested many in Jeddah but their pleas fell on deaf ears. The authorities back there and Indian embassy staffs also did not come to their rescue.

I contacted AMU old boy’s Association in Jeddah from where Jameel Khan and Faraha Khan highlighted this issue before the Consul General in Jeddah.  He has promised to send these immigrants back to India.

I appeal to Indian foreign ministry and our embassies to kindly take note of these incidents and make sure that these kinds of events do not get repeated anywhere. I also request them to ensure the safety and security of all immigrants Indian citizens.

I am listing the details of organization and agents those who were involved in bringing misery to these workers, below, and I request law enforcing bodies to kindly look into the matter and take strong action against those who are responsible and also provide all the assistance required to the victims.
