In the free West, we don’t ban people from sports competitions for “un-Islamic” acts. Anyone committing an “un-Islamic act” would simply be vilified and excoriated as a racist, bigoted “Islamophobe.” See, we are much more enlightened.
“Iranian women players banned from billiard sports competitions for ‘un-Islamic’ acts,” AFP, March 31, 2017:
Iran has banned some of its women players from billiard sports competitions for a year for violating the Islamic codes of conduct at a tournament in China, sporting authorities announced.
The Disciplinary Committee of Bowling, Billiard and Boxing Federation did not reveal the nature of the alleged offences, saying it would name the transgressors later.
“Women sent to China Open (billiard) competitions will be banned from all domestic and foreign competitions for one year for violating the Islamic code,” it said late Thursday, according to the ISNA and Tasnim news agencies.
The category of billiard sports includes billiards, pool and snooker.
The reported ban comes less than two months after the Iranian chess federation announced possible disciplinary action against an Iranian brother and sister for violating Islamic and political rules.
Dorsa Derakhshani, who holds the title of International Master, has been living in Spain for more than two years, and playing without the hijab headscarf in chess games.
She could face a ban from the federation, fines, prison or lashes if she returns to Iran….
