It is estimated that there were about 3 million migrant workers in Malaysia, as of the end of July last year.

Among the concerns raised is whether they are treated well by their employers? While some are treated with integrity, there are still many employers who do not take care of the well-being of these workers.

Recently, a TikTok video caught many people’s attention of a man in Pakistan who used to work in Malaysia.

Usman is now back in his home country and recalled how he was treated badly when he worked in Malaysia.

The video was posted by Ahmad Isa on his TikTok account a week ago and it has garnered 1.1 million views at press time.

In the video, Usman shared his experience while working in a fabric store in Kuala Lumpur, where he alleged that he was often disturbed and once was beaten by a stranger.

I used to work opposite Sogo, Kuala Lumpur in a fabric shop there. I returned to Pakistan again because people beat me.
Not only that, my sale items and passport were also taken, which made it difficult for me.


He further claimed that weekends were often filled with groups of motorcyclists who once punched him which caused him a broken tooth.
