21 yr old Malaysian gymnast Farah Ann Abdul Hadi was shamed by people over wearing a leotard at the Southeast Asian Games in Singapore last week. Being a Muslim, she was disgraced for wearing this kind of clothing and ‘revealing’ the shape of her genitals.
But she has shut everyone up by winning two gold medals and six medals in total at the sports event.
Several Malaysian Islamic groups have demanded clothing guidelines for Muslim female athletes that are sharia law-compliant. They released a statement saying: “Women should not be stopped from sports, but they must prioritise the Islamic codes in sports attire. Furthermore, there are many Muslim female athletes who succeed even by covering their aurat (genitals).”
We don’t know how much it is of importance, but there is a huge group of people supporting her. There is even a Facebook group called “Farah Ann Abdul Hadi For Malaysia” where messages of encouragement and praise for the gymnast are pouring in.
In one of the FB posts, Farah wrote: “I would just like to express my sincerest gratitude to all of you who have been supporting me. It is such an overwhelming feeling to have had such a great and positive support. Thank you so much.”
