Bangladesh cricketer suspended for ‘beating child maid’

DHAKA: Bangladesh national cricketer Shahadat Hossain was suspended on Sunday from all forms of the game as police probe allegations that he and his wife beat their 11-year-old maid.

Abuse of domestic servants is widespread across South Asia.


Note that the issue is that the girl was “beaten” not that she was employed as their house slave.

Islam approves of slavery.

    It is widespread and has been that way for as long as I can remember. I remember as a child my father instructing me not to tell them he was a mere private in the airforce or he would receive no respect from the people he was trying to teach.

    find me a muslim country where slave owning is illegal and I`ll give you the deeds to my house [ed uk ]

    • Islam approves, it can never be illegal in a Muslim state despite man made law to the contrary.

        Don’t forget the rock, they worship a rock too.

      While I appreciate your offer, I would only want it for a visit, until the rest of Britain wakes up it is just too dangerous. It will never happen as slavery is a tenet of their faith as you well know.
      Be safe and be careful.

    slavery and beating are authorized in the koran
