Rizana Nafeek we weep for you, and pray for a malediction to fall upon Saudia Arabia, may its oil wells burst into flames destroying it like Sodom and Gomorrah.

In a home in Sri Lanka ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Rizana was still a little girl, where she would have not been short of tender love and affection.ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â In a Sri Lanka household a daughter brings untold happiness into the house.ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â As she blooms into woman hood she becomes a treasureÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â loved and protected. Rizana Rafeek the little girl that left her home with her little head, now severed by brutes, fullÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â of dreams of a ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â better future for her father, mother, here two little sisters ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â and for herself perhaps a happy marriage aÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â home and children.
But she bloomed into womanhood in a Saudi Arabian prison and hadÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â 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 ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â to keep the home fires burning had seen how some of her neighboursÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â 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 richÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Arab families in the Middle East.ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Those who had come back from working forÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Arab families some with nails and needles and others ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â psychologically wounded for ever do not relate their ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â ordeals ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â and theÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â brutality suffered working as slaves for Arab Saudi families..ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Rizana ignorant of the brutality of the Arab homes too wanted to help her familyÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â from wages she may earn working for a Muslim family in Saudi Arabia.
RizanaÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¾Ã‚Â¢s father and mother may have consented because of the poverty they were faced with and without fear as Rizana would ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â after all be working for a rich ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Muslim family in Saudi Arabia ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â praying five times a day for the same omniscient AllahÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â they themselves prayed .
The poor parents of Rizana who sent her daughterÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â still a child of seventeen away to the people worshiping the same ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Allah they worshipped to bring back home happiness and prosperity was beheaded and was denied her parents to even see herÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â youthful face ofÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â a woman in her twenties before the Sharia sward severed her head from her body, and buriedÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â without even a tear from her loved oneÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¾Ã‚Â¢s to accompany her into the warm repulsiveÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â SaudiÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â 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 moneyÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â followÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â a religion ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â which is oldÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â and decadent.ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â They spend their time praying ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â to Allah five times a day, andÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â follow the Koran dictated by Him, advising the believers ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â to punish law breakers by beheading, decapitating, and chopping hands and feet followingÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â the savage primitive archaic uncivilised laws ofÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â a cursed divinity.
What good is a religion if it demands perpetration of utmost crueltyÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â toÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â human beings in the name of its God ?
Working in any Arab country in the Middle East is not a ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â happy and a comforting occupation.ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â The evidence ofÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â brutality committed against the servants slaving in Arab homes is manifold in Sri Lanka.ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â 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.ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Some were decapitated for ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â minor offences or for carrying a statue of the Buddha.
A domestic aid enteringÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â an Arab Muslim employerÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¾Ã‚Â¢s home ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â in reality ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â entering a prison. The first thingÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â the employer does is to take possession of the passport, then the baggage are ransacked removing portable telephones, photos and images.ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â There after the poor domestic aid becomes their slave.ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â She is locked up ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â prohibiting any communication with any one out side the employerÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¾Ã‚Â¢s home. They have to work from 3 oÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¾Ã‚Â¢clock in the morning and goes to sleep only after cleaning and washing every thing, which would be after midnight.ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â 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.ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â 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 ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â opulent homes ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â unable to supportÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â gruelling workÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â and inhuman treatmentÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â 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 ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â toilets, washing clothes and sweeping yards and also ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â look after the little baby while her ÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬Ãƒâ€¦Ã¢â‚¬Å“overfed mother ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â decked inÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â luxuryÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬Ãƒâ€šÃ‚ÂÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â was having her siesta or gone out shopping.ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Poor Rizana tired working from morningÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â 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 none else at home to be called for help.ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â 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,ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â therefore we should make a determination to fight against sending our women to slavery in Arab Muslim Countries which is ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â 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 ofÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â satisfaction that Rizana had not allowed those brutes armed with the Sharia Law and a sward to have beheaded her in vain.
