1,000 Indian workers dead: The grim reality of Qatar's FIFA World Cup dream

The 2022 Qatar FIFA World Cup will kill more Indians than the numbers of players it will host. This is what Sharan Burrow, general secretary of the International Trade Union Confederation said last year, when news of Qatari human rights violations made headlines. A thousand Indians had already died...Working 12 hours a day in 50 degree heat, without enough water - that’ll knock anyone out...many reported having lower salaries (which were rarely, or never paid), having their passports taken away, and working seven days a week...Despite the high death count of Indian labourers in Qatar, our embassy in Qatar says this it is “quite normal”, according to Amnesty International.
