MUQ wouldn't be earning much - he is an Indian so they are at bottom of the food chain in Saudi.Steve,Why would they want to come our pork eating country. When they made it to the wonderful Muslim Indonesia,.
MUQ Is it that they want all our lovely Christian Money ? That's all I can think of.
Like you MUQ you sold yourself out for all that lovely Saudi Money didn't you ?
The Arabs bring in indians via 'sponsors' and they are very much second class citizens.
Even a very skilled indian in a field like electrical engineering only earns about 6,000 rials or say $1,600 a month or $20,000 a year.($10 a hour)
I think we pay people more in McDonald's more in a hourly rate.
Someone like MUQ doing less skilled work would earn less. The 'sponsors' also demand kickbacks and fees and the Arabs go out of their way to denigrate the Indians - they hate them. In
Fact Saudi has announced plans to get rid of all the indians and ensure jobs for Arabs.
Saudi itself is a hell hole. Stinking hot, dirty, highly segregated, incredibly racist & intolerant.
The Arabs do not think any non Arab is a real Muslim and they are taught to avoid contact with any indian if they can. The mosques have seperate entrances and areas for the 'non Arabs'. Arabs are told they have to wash themselves if they have any contact with an
Indian Muslim. Only Sunni Wahhabi fanatic Indians are allowed in (Saudi is a Wahhabi fanatic state) and these Indians soon learn that there is no Muslim brotherly love.. they learn instead they are 'slaves' of Islam.
6,000 rials per month as wage in Saudi is not much to live on as a foreign guest worker slave, as living costs in Saudi are much higher than India. In general the only Indians that stay in Saudi are the ones that could not make it in India so have to live like this in bondage & servitude to the Arabs in a hell hole (no Indian can even look at an arab woman for fear of death and there are spy's and religious police - mutaween who regulary victimize and even execute foreign guest workers - it's a sport there.
So don't envy MUQ - he is in an Islamic hell hole and would be barely scraping by, earning less than what most kids would earn an hour doing a paper round here. One way some of these people cope is being all preachy about islam -(sort of like stockholm syndrome)- where the Indians are 'more muslim' than the Arabs (who all drink & smoke & gamble & fornicate openly btw). So in Saudi you have this odd immigrant slave underclass all terrified of the Arabs & having to pretend to be more pious and religious than the Arabs - otherwise they get dobbed in, sent back or whipped & even executed in public!
The whole place is one of the ugliest in the world and the people there, be they Arab or Indian are the most ignorant of all in the M.E. because they are so heavily indoctrinated. Saudi is literally the hell that god has sent all the sinners to live in.
