World Cup 2022: Homosexuality denounced by World Cup ambassador from Qatar

RELIGIONS NEWS AGENCY (REDNA) – Homosexuality has been denounced and described as a damage in the mind by an ambassador for the World Cup in Qatar.

Khalid Salman told the German public broadcaster ZDF that being gay is “haram,” or forbidden in Arabic, and that he has a problem with children seeing gay people.

This is as two weeks has left to the opening of the world cup in Qatar.

The Hindu reported about 1.2 million international visitors are expected in Qatar for the tournament, which has faced criticism and skepticism ever since the gas-rich emirate was selected as host by FIFA in December 2010.

Concerns about LGBTQ tourists attending the World Cup have also been expressed for a long time.

In the interview, Salman also said that homosexuality “is a spiritual harm.”

“During the World Cup, many things will come here to the country. Let’s talk about gays,” Salman said in English, which is simultaneously dubbed into German in the TV segment. “The most important thing is, everybody will accept that they come here. But they will have to accept our rules.”
