Controversy in FIFA World Cup 2022: The Person Defied The Rules Of Qatar! LGBTQ Flag Waved In The Field
Controversy in FIFA World Cup 2022: There are continuous controversies in the ongoing FIFA World Cup 2022 in Qatar. In the match between Portugal and Uruguay, a man entered with an LGBTQ flag, due to which the match was stopped for a long time.
The Portugal-Uruguay match was played on Monday in the ongoing FIFA World Cup 2022 in Qatar. Portugal won the match 2–0, but during the match, a protester took to the field carrying a colorful flag and wearing a blue Superman T-shirt with the words ‘Save Ukraine’ on the front and ‘Respect for Iran’s Woman’ on the back.
The security officers caught him and took him outside. Before that, he had put the flag on the ground. The referee later picked up the flag and placed it on the side from where the staff took it away. The flag that the person waved here was in support of the LGBTQ community, for which strict rules have been made in Qatar.
Looked like that pitch invader was carrying a rainbow flag. Fair, fair, FAIR fucks.

FIFA media officer Thierry de Becker said he did not know what happened to the protester afterward. Local organizers did not comment. Let us tell you that in the first week of the tournament, seven European teams were not allowed to wear colorful ‘One Love’ armbands. Some fans complained that they were not allowed to take colorful LGBTQ rights items to the ground.
Significantly, there is a lot of debate on Qatar’s rules regarding homosexuality and the treatment of LGBTQ people. Qatar has said everyone is welcome at the World Cup, including gays, but visitors must respect the host country’s culture.
‘Looks like he has come to take a photo with Ronaldo’
Portugal midfielder Bruno Fernandes, who scored twice against Uruguay, said he was too focused on the match to understand what the protestors were trying to convey. He said that he thought he had come to take a picture with Cristiano Ronaldo. He said, ‘I did not see what his message was, but we have spoken about it many times. We respect human rights but these are political issues and we cannot change anything about them.
