The World Cup in Qatar is known to be a much-discussed topic regarding the rights of the LGBTQ+ community and its rainbow symbol, as homosexuality is illegal in Qatar, a Middle Eastern country where Islam is the state religion.

The right to express solidarity and appeal to the attention of people around the world.
The female minister said in an interview that December 11 is the great anniversary of the adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights by the United Nations General Assembly in Paris in 1948, so she aimed to express her support for human rights, especially in Qatar, which was sentenced to Guilty LGBT rights. However, she also emphasized that she will express her solidarity in a non-aggressive and friendly way, and while expressing her country's voice, she will also be able to protect Qatar as a national partner.
