Qatar’s treatment of migrant labourers has been a global issue in the recent past and there have been calls for boycotting the Qatar World Cup from various corners of the world. It is estimated that close to 30,000 migrant labourers have been used for several projects including building seven stadiums for the tournament in Qatar, as well as a new airport, new metro, and new roads.

According to shocking reports which came out last year, more than 6,500 migrant workers from India, Pakistan, Nepal, Bangladesh, and Sri Lanka have died in Qatar since it won the right to host the World Cup 10 years ago.

According to shocking reports which came out last year, more than 6,500 migrant workers from India, Pakistan, Nepal, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka have died in Qatar since it won the right to host the World Cup 10 years ago.

Although the official reports suggested 6,500 deaths, the total death toll is significantly higher, as these figures did not include deaths from a number of countries that send large numbers of workers to Qatar, including the Philippines and Kenya.

These shocking revelations led to a global agitation, with human rights from all over the world, calling for a ban on the tournament and the removal of Qatar as host. However, FIFA had no intention of postponing the World Cup or removing Qatar as host. Human rights groups like HRW, Amnesty, and FairSquare then called on FIFA to provide US$ 440 million as compensation, but the apex body has failed to do that.

The deputy director of the Middle East and North Africa Human Rights Watch said: “It’s an embarrassment that despite prominent footballers, football associations, and sponsors supporting the #PayUpFIFA campaign and widespread popular support, FIFA has still failed to commit to calls for a remedy fund for many thousands of migrant workers who died, were injured, or had their wages stolen while making the World Cup possible.”

The pressure continues to remain high on FIFA and it will be for all to see what measures the global governing eventually decides to take.
