TW Newsdesk, Sept 30: Rights group for Women have called on FIFA to throw Iran out of the World Cup finals in Qatar in November because of the nation’s treatment over women. In a letter sent to FIFA President Gianni Infantino, the organisation stated that Iranian authorities continued to refuse to allow female fans access to games inside the country despite pressure from the game’s governing body.

“The Iranian FA is not only an accomplice of the crimes of the regime. It is a direct threat to the security of female fans in Iran and wherever our national team plays in the world. Football should be a safe space for us all,” the letter stated.
