Kuwaiti Vlogger Is Not Sorry And Says She Has The Right To Keep Servant’s Passport
Kuwaiti social media influencer is still not sorry for her comment against new laws that benefit Filipino housemaids in Kuwait which caused her getting tons of hate comments on social media, especially from Filipinos around the world.
Alqattan said that her comment was unjustified and does not require any apology.
“All I said was that employer was entitled to keep the servant’s passport, and that many Kuwaitis and Gulf nationals agree with me,” she told AFP.
The female social media personality, which has 2.3 million followers, is popular for giving make-up tutorials.
“I have the right as kafil (sponsor) to keep my employee, and do not concern humanity or human rights because I did not deprive the employee of her salary or beat her.
“The servant lives in the house just like the owners, he eats the same food, sleeps, rests and goes out shopping… this is a natural right. He’s not like a waiter who works fixed hours, so we give him a weekly leave,” she added.
