More Than One Nepali Worker Die In Malaysia EVERY Day

Malaysia Receives Criticism For Migrant Worker Deaths, Fatality Rate Higher Than Infamous Qatar - World Of Buzz

Malaysia is known for employing migrant workers from Bangladesh, Myanmar, Nepal and the likes.

Well, it’s been recently reported by Kathmandu Post that a shocking rate of more than one Nepali die EVERY day. 

The report highlights that the number is very disturbing for various reasons:

  • Unlike those dying in Nepal, people hired to work in Malaysia are healthy and fit. They would have to go through two rounds of medical test before they are employed
  • Nepalis in Malaysia have a higher death rate than those who work in Qatar (and Qatar is known for their inhumane treatment of Nepali workers)
  • Experts believe the Nepali deaths in Malaysia are due to unsafe living and working conditions, lack of rest as well as poor pre-departure orientation at home
  • Death rate continue to increase even though there’s a huge drop in the number of workers being brought into Malaysia

Reports show that more than 50% of their deaths are due to natural causes, while a third of them is attributed to suicide, and traffic and workplace accidents.

“Proper autopsies have not been carried out, and their deaths have been evasively attributed to heart failure or ‘sudden unexpected death syndrome,

“More research is needed to look into the poor work and safety conditions that may have contributed to these deaths, and the overlooked factors of stress, overwork, and dehydration,”

– Sherwood, refugee and migrant rights researcher

Worse, according to the Post, rights groups, activists and doctors say that the reports are not credible and it is known that the employers usually conspire together with the doctors to cover up the actual cause of death, not to mention avoid insurance claims and other obligations.

Nepali authorities have accused countries like Malaysia for not giving more concern to the Nepalis and denying them their basic human rights.

These workers are unfortunately looked down upon and discriminated by a lot of people from various countries, and Malaysia is no exception. Let’s all not forget that they are still human, and they often come over in hopes for a ‘better’ job to provide for their own family back home.
