Read the excerpt from Iqbal.
Hussain Khan looked at us and growled, "What do you think you're looking at? Get back to work."
We bent to our looms, but then we quickly peeked over our shoulders. Hussain brought the new boy over to an empty loom in the row next to mine, pulled out a rusty shackle, and locked it on the boy's right ankle.
"This will be your place, here's where you'll work," he said.
Based on the excerpt, which inference can be made about the setting?
