Woqod condemns attack on Qatar petrol station employee

Footage from attack on gas station attendant.
Footage from attack on gas station attendant.

Police have been contacted about a recent assault on a petrol station employee in Qatar, state-run Qatar Fuel (Woqod) has said in response to a public outcry over footage depicting the attack.

A 26-second video clip that appears to be CC camera footage shows an altercation between two men, in which a man in a white thobe standing next to a Landcruiser strikes a Woqod attendant dressed in a blue jumpsuit.

In the video, the petrol station employee falls to the ground unmoving, while another employee looks on.

In a message on its Facebook page yesterday evening, Woqod said it “strongly condemns this unfortunate incident.”

‘Not tolerated’

It did not provide specifics about which gas station the altercation took place in or when it happened, but added:

“WOQOD took immediate action through the involvement of the police in Doha. The person who punched the WOQOD employee has been interviewed by the police and action appropriate to the incident is being taken and is being (pursued) by WOQOD’s legal team.

This has always been WOQOD’s position for all such incidents and has led to successful prosecutions. Such behaviour to WOQOD employees will simply not be tolerated.”

Footage of the assault began circulating on Facebook and Twitter last week, garnering hundreds of comments about social injustice and calls for the perpetrator to be punished.

On Qatar Living, commenter BritExpat said:

“Man’s inhumanity to man. I hope the authorities will trace the moron and take action. I hope – but I don’t think it will happen.”

Other commenters accused Arabs and Qataris in general of being guilty of brutality, and lambasted the state for letting them get away with it. However, some residents decried the stereotyping, saying:

“Don’t speak about Arabs like that … Don’t you have such incidents in your countries ????? does that make all of you bad or Savage ???? respect your self and respect others, or don’t write/speak things like that. by insulting anyone means you are much worst than them…”

Thoughts?

The kind of guy who hits a man so hard that he falls to the ground in broad daylight, in public, and at a busy service station, and who then can be interviewed by the police and NOT ARRESTED is clearly relaxed enough to stop for a karak on the way home. He doesn’t think he’s done anything wrong, and nor do the police.

The thing is, it’s not stated whether he was arrested or not, all we know is that he is identified and was interviewed, adding the comment that he went for a karak obviously implies your assumption of him being Qatari or Arab, which seems a tad racist if you ask me. Anyway, until an official statement is released we wouldn’t really know what would happen, speculate as much as you want but please keep it respectful.

The guy is wearing a thobe and driving a white LC – he could be from anywhere but just driving on the roads and opening your eyes will lead you to make certain assumptions based on these 2 characteristics.

I’m not saying it is correct, I’m just saying that looking at a white LC and a guy in a thobe is unfortunately going to immediately have people thinking he is likely one of the multitude of locals that drive a white LC.

It’s unfortunate that people will jump to conclusions, but the fact the police have not released the nationality of the person who king hit the poor worker will only sway people more towards this line of thought.

If someone is wearing a white thobe and driving a LC, knocks a guy out in public with no provocation, and then calmly leaves the scene without the slightest fear of getting punched in return, it’s pretty clear that that person is secure and confident in the knowledge of the social position he enjoys as a person who wears a white thobe and drives a white LC. Perhaps if there weren’t so many examples of people who wear white thobes and drive white LCs using and abusing a broken system, the rest of the the white thobe wearing, white LC-driving population wouldn’t be so discriminated against in such a horribly racist and unfair way.

Why is everyone assuming that the guy is Qatari? From his thobe he looks more like an Arab but not necessarily a Qatari. But regardless of which nationality he has, he is an idiot and he deserves to be sued. I hope the poor labourer gets a good financial compensation from this incident.

Unless the employee has been incapacitated for days, it would be harsh for me to jail the offender. From the video it does not look like a violent punch. And yes, the same rule would apply on my dad too.
Now that said, the behaviour of the offender should be taken into consideration. If he shows sincere remorse, apologizes and accepts to pay a compensation then he does not deserve the jail term. If he behaves arrogantly or doesn’t show up to court then a jail term would be the right punishment for him.

Assaulting an individual is considered as a crime in civilized countries. It is an attack against human dignity.

While compensation can benefit the poor employee, it will only embolden those who are in power to hit anyone because they can afford to pay the compensation.

In other words, Its like this: If I don’t like your service, let me slap you. If you dirtied my car, let me punch you. I can afford to pay you afterwards right? Let us really show you what you mean to us, as slaves…

Let’s not pretend that there aren’t these kinds of problems in the justice system in developed countries. The injustices just tend to be more subtle. Just look at the prison statistics in the US, certain races and economic classes tend to get harsher sentences than others for the same exact crimes and situations.

Perhaps one of the most ridiculous examples of this is the case of the 16 year old Ethan Coach in Texas who hit and killed 4 pedestrians and seriously injured 2 others from drunk driving. His attorney successfully argued that his actions were not his fault and that his affluent upbringing did not teach him a respect for rules or discipline. His only sentence was long term therapy. I kid you not, you can google it. He got off because they basically said he was spoiled his whole life and doesn’t know right from wrong.

The difference though is that in most developed countries the media and nonprofit groups are able to name and shame injustices and bring it to the attention of the masses.

I’m not saying there’s no such thing as racial discrimination in the West, #blacklivesmatter has shown that. Ultimately, though, the systems in the West are geared toward equality even if it doesn’t always work out that way. Here, the government doesn’t seem to be aspiring toward it.

I think one of the biggest differences is actually transparency. If court records, verdicts and inmate statistics were readily available in Qatar then we would all have a better picture of what goes on. The culture here is very heavily based on a mentality of keeping things to yourself. Whether it is charging a qatari with murder or a qatari committing suicide, family reputation is considered a very sacred thing. This is also why family problems are kept in the family and professional help is rarely used. I think the society will become more transparent only if in the future there is less importance placed on family reputation.

COPS do not routinely kill black people–just like Arabs do not routinely assault petrol station attendants and gunmen do not routinely shoot at busloads of nepalese workers. Your comments do come across sometimes like you have something against white people, just like other people’s posts come across as having something against Arabs. Yet on both sides it is often just a reaction to a non routine incident and is sometimes used as an excuse to make comments on each other’s nationality or race. Wishing you a happy day and hoping for some good and interesting articles on Doha News.

Any valuable points made by commentators on this post are lost amongst the bickering. Wearing a Thobe does not define your citizenship. Nor does wearing any other country’s national dress.
From an observer’s point of view we are not in a position to judge motive or intent that resulted in this outcome. Self-control would have been advisable at the time. We do appreciate Authorities doing their job well, but it is understood that local authorities have varying approaches to similar incidents depending on the parties involved.
As residents of this country. permanent or temporary, it would best serve us all to be polite and patient with service providers and customers alike, accepting natural communications gaps and personal daily events that leave us all feeling overwhelmed and frustrated.
Throwing punches on this thread is no different from the video posted.

I have a suggestion. Send the man-with-the-thobe to go and fight in Yemen. That way he can get rid of his aggression on people that are at least able to defend themselves. LOL

Why use American resources when Muslims are the best at demolishing each other to extinction? 🙂

Exactly send this guys to Yemen or further away and lets see how big a hero this guys are instead of trying to beat and brutalize a poor worker and maids out there. Just wondering what would have been the result if the poor Asian had to do the same to the other guy in the white dress. The authorities would have already locked up the poor worker by now if he was the trouble maker without even giving him a chance to defend himself
