    Shanker mangalore ,its not as you think and say.When husband earns and brings money if at all good and happy family.But mostly some work and carry money to alcohol consume and let wife and children suffer.How many times wife and children had to suffer with his tortures after he consumed alcohol ?when women then start to earn money when no option left to bring up children that too will be not seen by husband good.He thinks that wife enjoys with other one and start many times to beat her and children have to suffer again.Of course some women leave husband and go to a lover where she finds love and safety.Here the husband must be not able to earn for a family so wife went out to work .Whats wrong here ?I doubt she is sending video etc from S arabia is doubtful .Because a maid sending video ?from there is not easy.well he consumed poison and why should he kill children?Could have made other arrangements to the wellfare of them.May God give health to children.wish them fast recovery:I still doubt this story.He must have felt humiliated.

    Having worked in KSA for over three decades, it is not easy as described here that the so called woman, a maid, generally works for Arab family would be let out by her sponsor for romancing and indulging in illicit action with outsiders unless the Arab himself is her lover. The suicide is the stupidity…..

    When a man earns money, his motive is to give the best of life to his wife and kids. When women starts earning, she becomes selfish and wants to find the best for herself and herself alone!!! Financial security to women brings out all the filth in her mind to actions!!!

    Sir, it's the nature of a person not related gender. If a person is faithful, loving and trustworthy he or she will do whatever to protect his or her family . Blaming only men or women is not apt.

    Shankar, the filth in your mind is clearly visible. What about the numerous men who cheat on their wives? Or do you think it is okay for men to commit adultery & wife needs to tolerate. Sickening

    Dear Shankar, Mangaluru, Fantastic take, but there is one problem. Woman's destiny is carved in stone. She better comply or she will be banished and roasted in broad daylight for opting her choice of life. On the other hand Samiullah (or Krishna or Robert, or you name it) could have abandoned at his will. In this case the husband enjoyed luxury of polygamy by law. Sorry, this is exceptional case and cannot be generalized. Women also can chose to have their life of choice. Most importantly, we are hearing a carefully crafted narrative, however flawed of husband. Wife is yet to come out with her version or will never come out. Who cares anyway for slave's version of how he or she was enslaved that she found a willing partner after giving birth to 3 kids.

    She got a job, she got a visa, plane tickets and landed in KSA. All this was done by leaving behind husband and 3 kids. She did not tell her parents either. Her new found partner managed so many things and nothing happened. Anyway, what a waste of 4 lives. Kids did not have to die, whatsoever may be reason.

    It is sad that people take such drastic decisions for not so pressing reasons... Life is large and we need a small space.... Samiullah should have moved on in life.... Having said that it is hard to imagine the trauma he underwent.... RIP to the departed soul.... I only hope and pray children are saved without any lasting health issues....

    After some time her situation will turn such that, she will remain as just a use and throw piece. Such is the fate of anybody indulging in adultery.... Consuming poison, what for? It's an idiotic act. Won't he get any other good women in marriage? He should have been happy a corrupt soul went off from his life and kids life.

    If one person or a few commits some crime doesn't mean the whole community is wrong. This is someone's personal matter and no relevance to hijab issue.
