A decade ago, Qatar was selected as the host of the 2022 Football World Cup. Soon after, the Middle Eastern country started a huge work on infrastructural development. Qatar has undertaken dozens of huge projects, including seven new stadiums for the World Cup.

In the meantime, the work of several of them has been completed and the work of the rest is in full swing. And this is being done mainly by migrant workers from South Asia.

According to a special report in The Guardian on Tuesday, more than 6,500 workers from Bangladesh, India, Pakistan, Nepal and Sri Lanka have lost their lives working in Qatar in the last 10 years.
