The Horrid Lives of Domestic Servants
Friday, January 30, 2015
In the old ages, there were slaves people used to buy or arrest them after the war. But with the
passage of time, slaves turned into servants. Now they are being paid for the specific task.
India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and Nepal became the largest countries where the
concept of domestic servants got the boom. In Pakistan, the average pay of domestic servant is
not more than 1200PKR and a single domestic servant work for at least 4 houses. That makes
the average monthly income 4800PKR ($56) only which is even less than the government fixed
minimum pay which is 6000. Those innocent people are being treated differently by different
background families. Some treat them considering a human being and some treat them like a
cheapest person of the world. There is a huge gap between these two edges. People who
consider them as human feels pity on them and always try to do something good for them but
the other group of people treat them like they have committed a sin being born in that family.
Life needs both good and bad people in the world. Being a Muslim, we need to take care of
them and support them. But one thing that is very common in human nature that if the basic
needs are not fulfilled of any person, the person goes for the alternative bad ways. Though it is
a very hard task to prevent you being bad but there is a possibility. But one thing that I have
noticed and practically implemented is that you can save them being a bad person by just giving
them respect. Respect is the thing which can mold people easily. But always consider that all
five fingers are not equal.
