A Saudi newspaper caricature about residents causes an uproar (photo)

A Saudi newspaper sparked widespread controversy due to cartoons it published about migrant workers in the kingdom.

The caricature shows expatriate workers of several nationalities, who are in tragic conditions, upon their final exit from the Kingdom.

The cartoon came as a description of news saying that about a quarter of a million expatriates were on their way to leave Saudi Arabia by the end of 2020.

Activists said that this caricature represents a clear incitement against expatriates in a racist manner, and their presence is not respected for the purpose of working in the Kingdom.

Tweeters demanded the competent authorities to hold Al-Madina newspaper accountable for its permission to publish this caricature, calling for greater respect for all residents of the Kingdom.

This is not the first time that controversial issues have been raised about the expatriates in the Kingdom, of whom more than a million have left during the past two years.
