Yeah the plight of guest workers in the Gulf goes unnoticed by most, but there is some international pressure to improve their conditions. Something that's odd, sad, and sorta funny is that the Gulf countries have huge demands for low skilled labor but they admit few if any Syrian refugees.

My guess is that they either don't give a rats ass or they don't trust them enough to lend a hand. What would Allah say? The Gulf countries need a good lesson on Islam, the Quran, the Ummah, and the will of Allah.

They have huge number of Syrians in UAE. Like 250 000 of them.

Basically, the caste system seriously sucks in India. There have been lots of controversies and riots over this topic. People create agendas out of anything they can based on Caste & creed. Literally, the politicians have been taking advantage of this for a long time now. This should stop in order to get fair treatment to everyone. Even though after this there are a lot of problems unsolved. But this problem is one of the stepping stones to the development of Indian economy and must strive to solve this issue as soon as possible.

People in the Gulf view Asians like some people in the US view Mexicans.
