Highlights from the World Cup Equal Rights, Including Attire
Instead of airing the ceremony with a theme of inclusivity, the main broadcast's commentators talked about human rights. Lineker, a former captain of England football, said in his opening monologue that this World Cup is the most contentious in history and that not a single ball has been kicked yet.
A Qur'anic verse was spoken during the Qatar World Cup opening ceremony:
"Oh, mankind! Indeed, We made you into peoples and tribes so that you may get to know one another. We created you from a male and a female. The one who is the most upright among you is undoubtedly the noblest in Allah's eyes. In reality, Allah is All-Knowing and All-Aware."
Verse 13 of Surah Al-Ujurt
There are many events that surprise a man and give him a new sense and a new thought. Similarly, a ceremony was held during the FIFA World Cup in Qatar, which was launched with a trinity that is the greatest need of today's time and era, and that is the belief that quality is in a world. People from different cultures can live together.
The most beautiful thing was that the conference started with a team explaining how many cultures and people could live together peacefully if they were to live together. After which, color, language, culture, and thousands of different things, how can one live together peacefully in a world, this is his biggest message to the whole world how you people can live peacefully?
The smallest country to host the sport's summit has had tremendous difficulties since FIFA selected Qatar to host the World Cup in 2010. The treatment of migrant labourers who constructed the stadiums where many people died, as well as claims of bid-rigging.
Here, homosexuality is forbidden, yet women's rights and freedom of speech are valued. Additionally, the decision to move the World Cup from summer to winter was made six years ago.
"A competition will be held against that backdrop, one that will be viewed and loved all across the world." We shall stick to football for a while, as FIFA has requested.
Twelve years after winning the right to host the first World Cup in the Middle East, Qatar has changed its labour laws, doing away with the much-criticized kafala system and the exit permit system that had been abused by dishonest employers.
Qatar has also adopted a minimum wage and new rules about working in the heat as part of labour reforms.
In a study this month, the International Labour Organization (ILO) stated that although Qatar had improved the living and working conditions for hundreds of thousands of workers, issues in implementation continued.
All spectators, regardless of sexual orientation, are welcome in Qatar, according to the World Cup organizers.
No one will be jailed or prevented from attending games in Qatar due to their apparel, despite the local organizing committee's advice to supporters to "respect the culture." Meanwhile, the country's record on equality has come under scrutiny as a result of persistent rumors about appropriate attire and modesty at soccer's most prestigious competition.
Rothna Begum, a senior researcher at Human Rights Watch, has researched women's rights in Qatar and the country's strict laws regarding male guardianship.
There isn't a formal clothing code, so no one will detain you for breaking it, Begum said. "There is no required attire, and breaking it won't result in consequences." "It is merely a societal tradition or restriction."
The local organizing committee has a section on cultural sensitivity in its fan guide.
"In general, people can dress however they choose." "Visitors should cover their shoulders and knees when entering public institutions like museums and government structures," "It declared.
There are numerous ways to interpret the term "public areas."
The supporter group for the US national team, The American Outlaws, produced its own fan manual.
One of the arguments being made against FIFA's choice to grant Qatar the 2022 World Cup is this. People took notice when retired American soccer player Carli Lloyd showed up to the World Cup draw earlier this year wearing a long, high-collared dress with long sleeves.
All teams were recently asked in a letter from FIFA's president, Gianni Infantino, and secretary general, Fatma Samoura, not to bring up political or ideological concerns during the competition.
Please, let's focus on football right now.
