Ever since it received the hosting rights in 2010, the 2022 FIFA World Cup has been dogged by controversy. Western media has been at the forefront of disseminating widespread propaganda against the tournament’s host country, Qatar, which has sparked disputes across the globe.
Shehbaz Sharif, the prime minister of Pakistan, has debunked western misinformation by saying that Qatar should be praised for its outstanding efforts in holding a successful event rather than being unfairly condemned.
Shehbaz Sharif expressed his support for Qatar on Twitter and sent his best wishes to Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, the Emir of Qatar. Sharif said that Qatar’s citizens should be applauded for their excellent preparations for the mega-event and that Pakistan stands in solidarity with them.
“Unfortunate that Qatar is receiving a torrent of propaganda as the host of the FIFA World Cup,” Sharif tweeted. Instead, it should be praised for the excellent preparations for the massive event and for advancing world peace and development. Pakistan supports HH the Emir and the people of Qatar. For the first time ever, a Muslim nation will host the FIFA World Cup. The competition’s previous iteration took place in Russia in 2018. Many football fans have criticized the western media for their apparent hypocrisy because they did not voice their worries about any issues while the event was hosted in Russia but have done so now that it is taking place in Qatar. Many have characterized the portrayal as being Islamophobic.
