two. Speaking about host country Qatar, he said: “If you look at Qatar, which hosts the World Cup, they have banned alcohol and sex during the World Cup season. That is their prerogative, as they have according to Islamic rules.
3. “Flying the flags of countries like Portugal, which is the first colonial invader in India, or those of countries that are hostile to Islam, should also be discouraged,” he said. According to the religious scholar, Islam prohibits the uncontrolled practice of sports and games.
Four. The Samastha Kerala Jam-Iyyathul Qutba committee is the body of khateebs who deliver Friday sermons in the mosques. The organization has ordered clerics to ask believers not to indulge in the extravagance and riotous celebrations associated with the World Cup. The New Indian Express (TNIE) said in a report.

A person can decide whether to listen to music or not, go for a walk in the morning or not, read a book or not… There is a Constitution in this country. They (Samastha) can do awareness classes if they want. Accept it or not is the call of the people,” Sivankutty told the media.
