asian man takes beatings from saudiA video clip of a Saudi man beating an expat worker has sparked public outrage. Several viewers have complained to the Human Rights Commission in Saudi Arabia to look into the matter.

In the video, the Saudi man is seen brutally beating an Asian man after accusing him of speaking to the Saudi’s wife.

Ibrahim al-Shadi, the spokesperson for the human rights body said that they have received many complaints and requests to punish the Saudi for flagrantly violating the Asian man’s dignity and human rights.  Al Arabiya news reported that al-Shadi added that the act also defied rules set by Islamic Sharia.

According to Akhbaar24, Dr Saleh Khathlan, vice president of the National Society for Human Rights said that the brutal beatings could not be justified no matter what the reason is.
