An Indian Muslim cleric has banned women from watching football, stating that it violates the tenets of Islam and was forbidden for women. . The senior Muslim cleric describes women watching men play football with bare knees as ‘unIslamic’.
The cleric is the head of Darul Uloom, a huge Sunni Muslim seminary- Independent reports
Kasmi’s 150-year-old seminary is known for having a very rigid interpretation of Islam.
During his Friday sermon, he criticised men also for allowing their wives to watch football, either at the stadium or on television.
His words: “Do you have no shame? Do you not fear God? You let her watch these kinds of things.
“Why do women need to watch these football matches? What they will gain by looking at footballer’s thighs. Their attention will be on that only and they will even miss the scores.”
The ban has been slammed by a Muslim women’s rights activist in Lucknow, a city in northern India.
Sahira Nasih said, “It implies that Muslim women should not watch any athletic event, tennis matches or swimming championships. How it can be immoral for a woman to watch men playing sport?”
