FIFA President supports Qatar against Western criticism

By: Ismail Fadl

Khartoum, Nov.20 (Agencies-Sudanow) FIFA president Gianni Infantino blasted the "hypocrisy" of Western critics of Qatar's human rights record on Saturday, making a passionate defense of the World Cup in the Gulf state on the eve of the kick-off.

Qatar officials say their country has been the target of "racism" and "double standards" and they point to the reforms on working conditions and safety that have been hailed as groundbreaking in the region.

Infantino, speaking at his opening press conference of the tournament in Doha, had harsh words for critics of Qatar.

"This moral lesson-giving -- one-sided -- is just hypocrisy," said the global football supreme.

"I don't want to give you any lessons of life, but what is going on here is profoundly, profoundly unjust."
