Qatar World Cup controversy
The 2022 World Cup in Qatar has been the subject of controversy over serious allegations of human rights abuses by the hosts.
The Guardian claimed last year that 6,500 migrant workers from India, Pakistan, Nepal, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka have died since the Arab country’s successful bid for the World Cup in 2010.
The number is based on information from the embassies of the respective countries in Qatar.
However, the Qatari government said the total was misleading, claiming that there had been 37 deaths among workers on World Cup stadium construction sites between 2014 and 2020, of which only three were “work-related”.
However, the International Labor Organization (ILO) has said that this was an underestimate.
Serious questions have also been raised about the treatment of members of the LGBTQ+ community, as homosexuality in Qatar is illegal and punishable by imprisonment or even death.
Controversy erupted after FIFA banned the One Love armband that England, Wales, Germany, France, Belgium, Denmark and Switzerland were supposed to wear in support of the gay and trans communities
