Mothers working abroad

“New laws will prohibit women with young children working abroad” “”…”says the newspapers ( Daily mirror august 10th 2012) It goes on to elaborate that the original proposal was to prohibit mothers with children under the age of 18 but due to objections it is now amended to be those with children under the age of 5. It will be interesting to find out what objections and who objected. Doubtlessly  some politicians having an income through the agencies who send the mothers.

No mother should ever leave her children under 18 and go abroad. If only they know the dangers these children in our society faces in such situation they will rather starve   than leaving them.

Now if the law comes to effect who will make sure the mother does not have child? Who knows? They will always lie to go as they are lying about their age, religion and jobs. The agencies will charge more if they know the mothers are lying. If someone gets caught having lied, then what happens? The mother will be put into jail. How does that solve the problem? It will neither bring  money nor solace for the children.

Our law makers make laws without thinking far. The only way we can prevent the mothers leaving their children is to educate them. Like the garbage matter we are tackling  important  problems in the wrong way. Informed consent is the only way we can make sure our aims are attained. But then the government always seem to be  looking for quick fixes. By now haven’t they realized that quick fixes do not work? Yes educating mothers is hard work, but there is no gain without pain.

If only even a few of the politicians will stop thinking about safeguarding their positions and put the country’s welfare first, we would be much better off, in  every sense.

    “No mother should ever leave her children under 18 and go abroad.”
    Is that Sharia law ?

    No mother should allow her child to be bottle fed ( specially by a girl belwo 18 years of age).
    Should be be the correct law in Stupid Saudi Arabia, where our daughter Rizana nafeek is caged and being raped by Saudi Judges.

    The sad case of Rizana Nafeek — an innocent young Sri Lankan girl awaiting execution in Saudi Arabia — is a clear reflection of the perverse cruelty endemic in Saudi Arabia.

  3. mjaya Says:

    We must always highlight the plight of Rizana whenever possible. Every keystroke counts in raising awareness and increasing the chance (no matter how minute it may seem) of the brutal regime in Saudi Arabia caving in to people pressure.

    Saudi people in SL should go back to Saudi.

    When they leave there will be enough businesses for locals so they don’t have to go to bloody Saudi.

    The problem is them. OUTSIDERS GO BACK ——> LOCALS COME BACK.

  5. Lorenzo Says:

    First the Arabs came to SL and STOLE SL women.

    Now they stay in Saudi and STEAL SL women!!

    This is disgusting.
