World Cup 2022

The opening ceremony can be found here.
It showed Morgan Freeman, a famous black American, exchanging a conversation with a Qatari that has an obvious physical disability; accompanied by songs in Arabic and then in English by a Korean singer.
I guess, they tried to pass a meaning of a Quranic verse using multiple art forms.

“O mankind, indeed We have created you from male and female and made you peoples and tribes that you may know one another. Indeed, the most noble of you in the sight of Allah is the most righteous of you. Indeed, Allah is Knowing and Acquainted.”
Quran 49:13

“People are equal like the teeth of a comb.”
Indeed, those who are fair and just, you will find in every land. And in the same land, you will find the corrupt and unjust.
Those who are fair are constantly challenged by the unjust.
The BBC was unfair in not showing this football opening ceremony. They cannot take the moral high ground. After all, they are the ones who promoted sir Jimmy Savile for decades. One day someone had enough, opened the cupboard and shown the world a wealthy Jimmy with a variety of sexual crimes.
It also showed the world that the pope is not infallible.
“All that glitters is not gold” is a beautiful English saying that can summarise it all.
