Islamic tolerance, from AFP (with thanks to Twostellas):
DHAKA – Islamists on Wednesday demanded the cancellation of the first women’s football tournament held in Bangladesh.
“We want the authorities to stop the women’s football tournament within 24 hours – otherwise we are going to surround the stadium where those games are taking place,” Monirul Islam, spokesman for the Islamic Constitution Movement, told AFP.
“With this tournament they are degrading women in society and it is an attack on the values of Islam,” he charged.
About 200 demonstrators from the movement demonstrated in the capital Dhaka on Tuesday, demanding an immediate end to the tournament, which began on Monday.
