Cleric calls for Muslim-only maids

Riyadh, July 27, 2010

A Saudi cleric said only Muslim housemaids should be allowed in the kingdom and they should be kept segregated from men in the home.

“If there is a need to import workers as female domestics, they should be Muslims,” Shaikh Yusef Al Ahmad, a lecturer at Riyadh’s Imam Mohammed bin Saudi University, told the sabq.org website.

He also said female domestics should cover themselves and have a male relative guardian with them, said a report in our sister newspaper, the Gulf Daily News. – TradeArabia News Service
