And why not, since “if slavery is bad as considered in today’s world, Allah certainly would have said that the slavery is wrong“? From the Boston Globe, with thanks to Twostellas:
A housekeeper is being kept in an undisclosed location under the supervision of the Philippine Consulate and a Filipino community leader after she fled Wednesday morning to a Boston police station from the Ritz-Carlton Towers residence, where she worked for a family, officials said yesterday.
Angelina Paringit, 36, told police she had been physically abused Tuesday night by her employers, who she said withheld her Philippines passport after she refused to turn over her salary to them, said Michael McCarthy, a police spokesman.
”When she refused to hand over the money, they repeatedly hit her in the face and refused to let her leave the room,” McCarthy said.
No charges have been filed against the couple, Mohamed Hassan Mufti, 51, and his wife Afaf Mufti, 52. They could not be reached for comment.
Paringit told police the alleged incident was not the first time the Muftis had abused her. McCarthy said the Police Department’s Major Case Unit is investigating.
