    Iran Women’s Soccer Team Banned From Olympics Over Headscarves by FIFA a unique punishment?

    I am very much shocked over the decision made Officials of the international football association, FIFA, have dismissed the Iranian women’s soccer team because the tight headscarves the players were wearing to cover their hair broke the association’s dress code, Washington Post said.

    FIFA banned Iranian female for observing Hijab "hand scraf" but no shame or banned for Germany women Soccer Team to display figure clearly and posing for PLAY BOY? Shame on FIFA and West both countless time?

    More shameful when Germany women’s soccer team exposed for PLAY BOY showing entire body and figures than no problem for FIFA they like and enjoyed? when Muslims women's from Iran observe true Islamic Hijab than what problem for FIFA any one can example? this is only punishment why you Muslim's truly observe Hijab which give pain to West? the only reasons? I must say shame on West and FIFA for all the time double standard? Give liberty to own female to display entire body? but when Muslims women's observe Hijab by covering face or body than apply "banned" this is not banned but consider a BLACK LAW?

    I must say this is total a DOUBLE standard of FIFA and keeping Iranian Women’s soccer team to keep away from Olympics due to as punishment?


    Thanking You.

    This has been discussed on another thread.

    FIFA worked with IRAN to certify a close fitting head cover that covered the hair, but left open the ears and the neck. It also did not limit peripherial vision.

    Iran then tried to take the field in loose headscarves, in violation of the agreement. They also were wearing loose long sleeves, and loose pants, which are also kit violations.

    Since they did not follow the dress code everyone else does (even with the dispensations given) they were not permitted to take the field as they violated the rules of the game (FIFA rules).

    I guess making sure they do not show thier neck or ankles is more of a concern for the Iranian goverment than the team actually playing. That and scoring some cheap political points.

    The West hates Islam in general and Iran specifically.

    This is just more evidence of prejudiced towards Muslim.

    This was already discussed in another thread. Interesting how idiots like you assume FIFA is a western committee. Take a look at the makeup, fuckwit, and you'll see the members are internationally represented. There's even Arab counties represented on the committee. Now take a hike, moron!

    The part where they made a decision that doesn't suit Sonny. Everyone hates Islam. This gives him certified victim status, so he can whine like a 3 year old.

    Soccer kits are one of the more egaltarian clothes out there. Men and women wear basically the same thing.

    How about this, we let the Iranian women wear the soccer-burqas if the iranian men's team does the same thing.
