What Has Islam Got To Do With Sport?

Farah Ann Hadi

Farah Ann Hadi, a Malaysian gymnast who did Malaysia proud by winning 4 medals (2 gold, one silver and one bronze) at the ongoing Singapore 25th SEA games was in the limelight two days ago on social media.

It wasn't just about her achievement but also about some Malay Malaysians giving her a piece of their mind. According to those moralists, she had committed a "sin" in Islam by exposing her awrat (intimate parts of a body in Arabic) wearing  standard approved leotards in the competitions.

Will Malaysia Become A Taliban State?

One of the persons who came forward to defend her was the daughter of the 4th Prime Minister of Malaysia (Mahathir Mohamed), and social-political activist, Marina Mahathir.

In replying to the question two days ago at a panel discussion at the Cooler Lumpur Festival, she said: “No, I don’t think we’ll be a Taliban state yet. We’ll be a stupid state first.”

Where Do I stand On This Issue?

If I were you, Farah, I would have asked those morons to go and fuck themselves.
