Fatwa Issued Against Tennis Star Mirza

1st NW Quadrant\The Approval Matrix: Week of February 18, 2008

... the Sunni Ulema Board in India has declared [that] tennis star Sania Mirza should cover up because she is leading a bad example for other girls. Mirza recently became the first woman from India to enter the world top 50 after winning the Women’s Tennis Association title in her home city of Hyderabad. ‘Sania mania’ has gripped not only India, but the diaspora all over the world... -- pickled politics

The clerics issued the verdict demanding that Sania cover up during matches, saying that her skirts and T-shirts are "un-Islamic" and "corrupting". -- The Guardian
