Why Shakira Pulled Out Of Qatar World Cup


Why Shakira Pulled Out Of Qatar World Cup.

Columbian singer Shakira was forced to opt out of the opening ceremony of the Qatar 2022 Fifa World Cup after facing heavy criticism from world’s human rights organizations and millions of online users for the violation of human rights in the Arab nation.

The new development was confirmed by Shakira’s management team,The hips don’t lie star did not give details for her exit although many of her fans were looking up to that.

The superstar dancer followed the footsteps of Dua Lipa and Rod Stewart who also turned down the offer to showcase at the prestigious World Cup opening ceremony.

Despite the heated criticism BTS Jungkook agreed to perform in the opening ceremony as well as Us artiste Diplo, Dj Calvin Harris and Jamaican dancehall Star Sean Paul who’ll be performing at the Fifa Fan Festival during the 29 days showpiece.

Human right groups believe that more than 6500 immigrants have lost their lives working in preparation of the soccer bonanza.

Qatar is also a leading Arab nation with highest number of human mistreatment cases.A good example is the Qatari women who don’t enjoy same freedoms as their men.

Fifa has continued to wade through critisism after it awarded Qatar the rights to host the 2022 world cup despite being ranked as a highly homophobic nation.
