Qatar has banned homosexuality in its country. The FIFA official’s response to the same has been a little off-put. The emphasis has been constantly given to the nations focusing on ‘football’ specifically. The questions of human rights are the domain of another discussion altogether, although the reactions to Jungkook joining Qatar amidst the controversy will be an event to witness.
