Cleaner Received gifts gold jewels after being meme Mocked in Saudi Arabia

This all about humanity. A story of a Nazer al-Islam Abdul Karim, who is Bangladeshi National and working as a cleaner in municipal department of Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

This actually began from a picture, taken and shared by an Instagram user, in which a man in municipality uniform has been mocked by someone. The picture was taken in-front of a glass display of jewelry where he is staring at it.

On his looking or staring at the jewelry the photographer shared the photo of that man on Instagram and mocked him with a caption that read “He looks as though he is seeing trash.” Other sources say the caption read, “This man deserves to only look at rubbish.”

However, that cruel comment was soon overshadowed by outpouring support after Abdullah al-Qahtani, the owner of the Twitter account Ensaniyat (Arabic for humanitarianism), vowed to find the man in the photo.

He started a campaign on twitter to find the victimised person. His post was received a very good response by the people. The post received over 6,000 shares, Al-Qahtani said.

I received so many calls after posting a small campaign in the favor of that man, Abdullah add.

People were ready to support him in any way. SOme were claiming that he is the man who was insulted and mocked and some were ready to help and support that man. So, about three hourse were gone to post a compaign to find out that person and we succeeded and found, Abdullah Said.

In a meeting with victim of that joking he told to a private news channel that he is was 65 years old Bangladeshi and working as a cleaner in municipality, Riyadh, KSA. He said, “I was on my working site where I got a news regarding this that someone is searching me.”

In short, he told that he is delighted on being awarded with different gifts.

“I was just doing my job as a cleaner in the municipality and found myself in front of the gold shop. I am very happy about the gifts and very thankful.”

“More money is being sent to Abdul Kareem account,” al-Qahtani told to Al-Arabiya news. While he didn’t specify the amount, CNN reports.

Abdul kareem, whose monthly salary is $187 (700 Saudi riyal), has been promised “thousands of riyals.”

Al-Qahtani said Abdul kareem has also received “two-way tickets to his home country, and two phones — one is iPhone-7 and one Samsung Galaxy.” He described that the janitor is “very hardworking,” adding “Abdul kareem also takes care of homeless kittens on the street where he works.”

In addition, Turki al-Dajam, who is an executive at a local Saudi sports channel, tweeted images of Abdulkareem receiving a gold jewelry set.

“I really wish we can always stay united like this to help people in need,” Al-Qahtani.
