Watch: Tennis player, Sania Mirza’s attire un-Islamic – Muslim cleric

New Delhi: In the Zee News show, ‘Fatah Ka Fatwa’, which was attended by two Islamic clerics along with three other women including two Muslim women’s activist and one representative of all India Muslim person law board, one of the clerics, Sajid Rashidi, commented, “If a sport requires women to drop their burqas, then women should not take part in the sport, they are not even meant to wrestle” said the cleric on Zee News show ‘Fatah ka Fatwa’.

“Do you think Sania Mirza’s attire is legal? Is it legal? It is sexual and hence, un-Islamic,”

In today’s episode of “Fatah Ka Fatwa”, a talk show hosted by journalist Tarek Fatah, the debate was about, “Is the Burqa a must for all Muslim women?”

During the debate, Indian fast bowler Mohammed Shami’s wife was also a subject similar criticism.

It is to be mentioned that Shami received the backing of entire cricketing community after the social media outburst with Mohammad Kaif being one hit back at those criticizing Shami.
