Two Journalist Dies Covering FIFA World Cup. The sudden death of two journalists who had come to cover the FIFA World Cup 2022 has raised questions on the Qatar authorities. The first was the sudden death of an American journalist who was not allowed to enter the stadium for wearing a rainbow T-shirt at the start of the World Cup during the Argentina vs. Netherlands match. Now the sudden death of Qatar’s own photojournalist Khalid Al-Mislam has again given rise to controversies for the Qatar World Cup.
Who was Khalid al-Mislam
According to Gulf Times reports, Qatari photojournalist Khalid died suddenly over the weekend. At the same time, the report of Qatar News states that Khalid, who works for the Qatari news channel Al Qas TV, was covering the FIFA World Cup. However, the complete details of his death have not been given. It has only been said that the journalist died suddenly. The news outlet has written for Khalid that no one works before the will of Allah. We pray that Almighty forgives all his mistakes and may his soul rest in peace.
American journalist also died
At the start of the FIFA World Cup 2022, 48-year-old American journalist Grant Wall was stopped from entering the stadium and detained for 30 minutes. This is because he wore a rainbow T-shirt which is considered to be pro-LGBTQ community. Grant Wall was covering the ongoing quarter-final match between Argentina vs Netherlands when he suddenly collapsed and was rushed to a nearby hospital but could not be saved. It was also not clear whether he died on reaching the hospital or on the way.
Brother accused Qatar
After the death of American journalist Grant Wall, his brother Eric has made serious allegations against the Qatar government and says that the government is involved in this death. Grant Wall criticized Qatar for being prevented from entering the stadium wearing a rainbow T-shirt. He also wrote on Friday that the Qatar government and the World Cup organizers do not care about anyone. He had done the work of hiding the death of migrant workers.
